The Rhythms of Africa


Celebrating the end of Apartheid, the Afrovibes Festival showcases Africa's culture through performing arts, food, exhibitions, and free events.This year will be accompanied by film screenings touring the UK, such as Sea Point Days, and the animated family tale, Khumba, about a zebra born with only half its stripes.

Running from 14th - 18th October, Photographer, Tyler Dolan, will open the festival with his free exhibition at The Albany. African Inspired will feature hyperrealistic portraits of African fashion.

If you are going on the last day, then you may also like to stat for The Soil, a cappella that fuses pop, hip-hop, jazz, and soul for rhythmic sounds. Tickets to the hour-long show are 12 or 10 concessions at 8pm.

Biko's Quest on the 15th & 16th October is a theatre production that interprets the inspiring story of anti-Apartheid campaigner, Steve Biko.

Other shows on the programme include Chill Pill poetry readings, an Instant Rap Workshop, Choir Masterclass, and more.
