MATL Lady Zamar – PRESS 1-1


Durban was showing off again yesterday, with temperatures reaching 26 degrees coupled with a slight breeze rustling through the tall trees at the picturesque Durban Botanic Gardens; to welcome thousands of Durbanites for the final Old Mutual Music at the Lake concert.

Durban-based Colours of Sound got the party started bright and early with a dance set that got fans of all ages moving and shaking! Shortly afterward, Lady Zamar took to the stage and entertained the 2500 strong crowd with a handful of her classic songs as well as some new tunes that got the excitable crowd dancing even more. Finally, Black Motion brought the beats, drums and dance moves on stage for the perfect finale of the 2019 Old Mutual Music at the Lake series. 

Thobile Tshabalala, Head of Old Mutual Brand commented that…Once again, we acknowledge and are grateful for the power of the universal language of music. Today at the Durban Botanic Gardens where Lady Zamar, Black Motion and Colours of Sound wowed the crowds, Old Mutual’s sponsorship of the Music at the Lake series enabled us to engage in a manner that resonates with our market.” 

Through all our music sponsorship properties (that includes our Old Mutual AMPD Studios, our sponsorship of the National Choir Festival and Idols SA, as well as our recently launched initiative Amazing Voices) we are driven to empower, inspire and support aspiring artists,” says Tshabalala. “At the same time we position ourselves to provide our national talent with platforms to become their exceptional best and ensure that their dreams are supported with the understanding of the importance of having a firm financial foundation and partner.”

We are delighted to be able to engage with people in such beautiful surrounding while they are treated to the amazing raw musical talent of our country. Our contribution to the Music at the Lake series also enables us to positively contribute to the sustainable environmental maintenance and upkeep of these spectacular venues. The shared value these events offer is what it is all about.”
