Madame Zingara Returns to the Zulu Kingdom

Published

on

*COMPETITION CLOSED*

It’s been two years since the enigmatic Madame Zingara left the fun-loving city of Durban and it’s about time we returned to dazzle once again. After sell-out shows in Cape Town and Johannesburg, the inimitable crew will be packing their glitter-filled suitcases and embark on the journey to the warm and friendly capital of KwaZulu-Natal, ready to swing open the doors at the end of January. This might be the final stop of the exhilarating After Forever Tour, but the best has most definitely been left for last.

Housed in one of the last remaining antique mirror-tents in the world, and with an amazing new interior, the captivating After Forever show is filled with exceptional local and international acts. Audiences can expect red-hot Argentinian Gauchos, mind-bending contortion and mesmerizing aerial acts of strength and agility. And the hilarious antics of Hot Mr C and his tiny companion, the Absinthe Fairy, weave the night together. Madame Zingara’s very own songbirds, The Specifics, will also have guests tapping their toes to all-time favourites throughout the night while gourmet chefs serve a delectable four-course meal. It’s the ultimate night out and a much needed escape from our daily realities.

We’re delighted to once again be hosted by our friends and Durban’s premier entertainment destination, Suncoast. This will be our third stay, and we can’t wait to pop some champagne and enthrall Durban once again.

Suncoast’s Marketing Manager, Louise Howell said they have missed the incredible show and are thrilled about the return of the magical Madame Zingara crew to their grounds once again. “Durban can look forward to thrilling entertainment as the new unique and electrifying acts in the After Forever tour captivate Durbanites in true Madame Zingara style.”

Theatre of Dreams 

Madame Zingara’s Theatre of Dreams is a dinner cirque spectacular which has been thrilling audiences in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban since early 2007. Based on the traditional Mirror tents of Europe, the innovative Theatre of Dreams has completely transformed the concept of dining out in South Africa, earning them many accolades for their interpretation of ‘dinner theatre.’ Offering a multi-sensory experience, which transcends the boundaries between audience, artists and staff, it is a unique synthesis ofdining and entertainment where everything is possible and anything can happen.

Madame Zingara

Originally founded in 2001 by Richard Griffin, Madame Zingara was a capricious 80-seater restaurant nestled in the heart of Cape Town’s city centre. It was well known for its outlandish glitter-dusted service and Richard’s whimsical culinary creations.

Disaster struck in 2006 and the restaurant was burnt to the ground. Unable to rebuilt what was lost, the Zingara family fought back and so the Theatre of Dreams was born – an enthralling traveling dinner-cirque extravaganza housed in one of the last remaining antique mirror tents in the world. Enjoying full houses in Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg, Madame Zingara transformed the concept of dining out in South Africa, earning many accolades and awards along the way.Being a Cape Town based company, it seemed only right to put down roots and the Zingara Group has lovingly restored and resurrected landmark city restaurants. The Sidewalk Café, Café Mozart, Café Paradiso, The Bombay Bicycle Club and, most recently Café Manhattan, are now all proudly part of the Zingara family.

Win Tickets to Milky Chance in Durban!

Published

on

Milky Chance recently announced their long-awaited return to South Africa with their “Living In A Haze” tour in February 2024 which will see them perform in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban. The German Duo are excited to confirm that both Neon Dreams and Sean Koch will join them as support acts on the line-up for their shows in Cape Town (15 February) and Johannesburg (17 February), and Neon Dreams will also join Milky Chance in Durban (18 February) as support act.

Canadian duo Neon Dreams are no strangers to the South African music scene. Their 2019 single “Life Without Fantasies” reached the top of the South African viral charts amassing millions of streams in 2021 during the lockdown. The band connected with tens of thousands of fans online which led to their first sold out headline tour. They have continued to cement themselves in the industry here, having toured the country a number of times over the past few years and return in February 2024 to share the stage with Milky Chance in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban.

Sean Koch is one of SA’s most-loved indie-folk artists who brings a mixed bag of African and western, influence alongside messages of home, a connection to nature, the ocean and the people around him; to his storytelling, feel-good music. While rooted in his flowing-folk style, his music is diverse. From dance infused songs like ‘Lift You Up’ the standout single from his collection (including the Double MZK & G DOM remix) to the dreamier songs like ‘Feel the Energy’ that carry deeper messages of connection to the natural world and the people that surround us. There is something for everyone in Sean’s catalogue.

Ziggy Alberts announces his debut South African tour as he heads to Durban, Johannesburg and Cape Town this October

Published

on

By

Ziggy Alberts’ first ever South African visit will anticipate the release of his forthcoming sixth studio album, DANCING IN THE DARK, out 04 November 2022.

Musically, Ziggy’s sound has raised comparisons to the likes of early Ben Howard or Jack Johnson. His sound is laid back, soulful and folk-tinged, and his songwriting is honest and personal. Whilst Ziggy Alberts is similar to his contemporaries in writing about his personal experiences, his music is layered with subtextual references to issues close to his heart, such as the natural world, the human experience and the wider planet.

DANCING IN THE DARK has been driven by real-time releases, including the singles I BELIEVE, TATTOOS, THE GREAT DIVIDE and most recently, THE SUN & THE SEA featuring Donovan Woods, which all find their home on the album. The new record sits in a genre – self-titled by Ziggy – as “Future Folk”. In his own words, “the album is a blend of the honest and raw, with the smoothness and touch of synthesised soundscapes, intentional tuning and programmed organic samples… that reflects accurately the range of experiences we are having as humans in our current world.” Matched with Ziggy’s storytelling and sincere songwriting, DANCING IN THE DARK shows yet another step in Alberts’ growth as an artist, his music and personal explorations, both introspectively and in the natural world.

Founder of his independent label, Commonfolk Records, and book publishing house, Commonfolk Publishing, Ziggy Alberts has managed to craft what many musicians and authors dream of – the ability to tell a story on their own terms. In 2022, Ziggy was awarded an APRA for his track letting go. He has also earned ARIA Platinum certifications for Laps Around The Sun (Double Platinum), Gone, Runaway, Heaven, Love Me Now, Stronger and Four Feet in the Forest (EP), plus Gold certifications for his Laps Around The Sun album and six tracks in his catalogue.
