Of all the cultural, social or political tools available to humankind to marshal thought and commitment into cohesive and purposeful action, music remains the singularly most powerful. Who could forget Live Aid across the world, The Nelson Mandela Festival in London and our own Concert in the Park in 1985 which brought together 150,000 South Africans of all hues and persuasions to celebrate, through music, the oneness of the people in the face of apartheid?
Right2Unite, a progressive social movement that is dedicated to the advancement of equality, tolerance, engagement, unity and cohesion, based around the core value of human rights, is proud to announce the first three artists to grace the stage at it`s upcoming Right2Unite Festival for the People at the Cradle Boutique Hotel in Kromdraai, Johannesburg on 21st March 2020.
Ndlovu Youth Choir
If there is one group who have enthralled, excited and brought global audiences to their feet to deliver a powerful message of unity and brotherhood over the past year, it is South Africa`s Ndlovu Youth Choir. Their toe-tapping, energetic and show-stopping performances on America`s Got Talent sent out a message to the world that these new kids on the block are here to stay!
Influenced by the likes of John Legend, The Weekend and 6lack, Apple Gule blazes his own trail with a brand of soul, new age R&B and pop for the new generation. His debut six-track e.p “Handwritten” has set the charts alight and Apple`s slick live moves are bound to be a sure-fire festival favourite.
With a natural fusion of pop, electro, funk and soul, Easy Freak has been making waves and getting crowds moving to a fresh and unique sound. The Durban duo made up of Dom Hurd and Jude Kenrick have unequivocally made their mark playing at some of South Africa’s biggest music festivals alongside the likes of Damien Marley, Riky Rick, Cassper Nyovest, Kwesta, and Micasa to mention but a few.
With more amazing and exciting artists to be announced over the coming weeks, The Right2Unite Festival for the People promises to be the ultimate feel-good unifying music, dance, art and cultural event of 2020.
