Fresh from a sold-out run at the Artscape Theatre, the cast of Lyrics Still Matter is back – this time, bringing their production to the Cape Town Comedy Club at the V&A Waterfront.
Two vocal artists share how music and lyrics have shaped their experiences of growing up in the diverse city of Cape Town, as well as how their art was influenced by the culture around them.
Ghoema award-winning Hip Hop soul singer & rapper Jerome Rex and singer-songwriter Nadine Matthews will have you enthralled as they musically share their journeys. The show will be woven together by a range of familiar songs, as well as the pair’s own original material. This will include a combination of RnB, dance, smooth jazz and Afrikaans hip hop.
Themes of identity and community pride are explored through the lyrics of songs with the backing of a 4-piece band; Nathaneal Barthus, Bradley Lodewyk, Robin Thompson, Vaughn Webber and backing vocalists Adelle Kock & Timothy Stuurman. Look out for guest appearances by acclaimed flamenco dancer Demi Johnson and saxophonist Lee Hoffmann, all hosted by our MC, Garden Route native and award-winning rapper Jason “Hakkiesdraad” Hartman.
Lyrics Still Matter shows at the Cape Town Comedy Club on 11 and 12 September. Tickets are available at Computicket: https://mobile.computicket.com/event/lyrics_still_matter/7081216
