LADY ZAMAR AND FRIENDS AT OLD MUTUAL MUSIC AT THE LAKE

Published

on

DURBAN – It’s the 4th and final show of the 2019 Old Mutual Music at the Lake series and one you certainly do not want to miss out on. Especially if you’re into the sounds of Afro-pop, hip hop and a little bit of hip-swaying, foot-tapping, soul-shaking house music. Old Mutual Music at the Lake, together with East Coast Radio, is proud to present Lady Zamar, Black Motion and Durban-based Colours of Sound.

Sunday the 3rd of November will see 3 energising live performances by 3 proudly South Africa acts, and it’s a show for those who don’t feel like lazing around at home on a Sunday; but would rather grab their friends, their outdoor picnic gear, and their dancing shoes as they get set to party in the park. It’s guaranteed to be an unforgettable afternoon of great musical talent, set in the lush Durban Botanic Gardens.

Dubbed the New Queen of House Music, Lady Zamar is a vibrant and dynamic musician with an angelic voice that just gets people moving. With a number of award-winning albums, there’s no doubt that this talented young musician and her entourage will bring all the glory to the stage. In 2017 she won Song of the Year at the DStv Mzansi Viewer’s Choice Awards for her song Charlotte; and at the 2018 South African Music Awards she won the award for Best Dance Album.

Lady Zamar will be supported by the equally vibrant Black Motion, one of South Africa’s favourite house acts, and a duo who combine cosmopolitan house beats with tribal notes and deep groove sounds to create a uniquely inviting set.

Also new to the Music at the Lake stage will be Durban-based house band: Colours of Sound. The multi-talented duo have been writing, performing and producing music for years, and are rapidly gaining respect on stage with their infectiously vibey live performances; which include instrumentals such as the guitar, piano, saxophone and percussion – making them a musical treat not to be missed.

From the beginning of the series, event sponsors Old Mutual have played a key role in providing a lifestyle experience that ignites passion, enjoyment and relevance. “There is no better way to do that than with the power of the outdoors, community and music combined,” says Old Mutual Sponsorship Manager Bandile Mngoma.

With picture-perfect picnic spots, an opportunity for families and friends to enjoy each other’s company nestled among nature, all the while supporting local music; there’s more to the Music at the Lake series that meets the eye.

In addition to the superb experience created on the day, the proceeds from the Music at the Lake concerts are allocated by the Durban Botanic Gardens Trust to projects that assist with the maintenance and sustainability of the Gardens, ensuring it remains a place for all who visit to appreciate and enjoy. Even more reason why you should join Lady Zamar and friends on Sunday the 3rd of November at Durban’s most beautiful and best-kept outdoor event.

Tickets are available via www.webtickets.co.za.
Early bird tickets cost R140 for adults, R80 for children between 6 and 12, and R20 for children Under 6.

Gates will open at 12h30 on Sunday the 3rd of November. Secure parking is available on the umPhafa field at the Durban Botanic Gardens. Attendees are invited to spend the afternoon picnicking on the beautiful lawns, and are welcome to bring their own food, drink, blankets and camping chairs.

Published

 “It has been touch and go as to whether the 2021 event would even be able to take place this year,” says Alene Naidoo, Organiser of The Durban Botanic Gardens Trail of Lights. “Last year was such a disappointment, when we had to close early, due to covid regulations; but we are have received the go-ahead from eThekweni Municipality and barring any major announcements from the President, we are optimistic that the 2021 show WILL go ahead as planned – kicking off on 3 December 2021.  This has been a challenging year in every way and this year’s event offers a celebratory moment for us all.”


Now in its fifth year, The Trail of Lights is a firm fixture on both the City and the Gardens’ festive season calendar,” says Martin Clement, Curator of the historical Gardens.  “We are grateful that our various media partners including East Coast Radio and Independent on Saturday, have joined with us again to bring Durban’s favourite festive event to as many people as possible. We are all desperate for some year-end relaxation and fun and that’s what you’ll get at The Trail of Lights.” 

With the Gardens festooned with thousands of lights, 2021 is sure to delight visitors of all ages, with world class lighting displays, nightly entertainment, charity activations, a food garden and festive characters.


The Trail of Lights will open on 3 December 2021 and run until 2 January 2022.   To meet protocol requirements and ensure the safety of patrons, key operational changes have implemented this year.  Most significantly, the introduction of three entry times at 18:00, 19:00 and 20:00 respectively.  This will allow for social distancing, as families can navigate their way around the trail before the next group arrives. There will be no ticket sales at the door.

The Trail of Lights takes place from 3 December 2021 to the 3 January 2022, excluding Christmas Day, in Africa’s oldest botanical gardens.
Tickets are extremely limited and NO tickets will be available at the door. Children two years and under enter for free.

Tickets are available from www.webtickets.co.za or Pick ‘n Pay.
