1000 Drawings: Doodling for a Difference

A 1000 drawings made an appearance in Joburg today. The event was held at the Alex theatre roof top.  This is a unique fundraising exhibition, where drawings donated by anyone and everyone, are collected and sold to the public for R100.

The event is to promote the inner city and encourage the general public to embrace the inner city more  and involvement the community as contributors of art work but also as volunteers to help manage and maintain the event. In that motivating the general public to use their creative juices and get involved in a good cause. The aim is to break the whole syndrome of “I cannot draw”, “I as an individual cannot do anything to change things, that’s the role of governments and big corporates”.

The next 1000 drawings event should be in two weeks and we will keep you up to date with the details.

Tumi and the Volume: South African Tour

Hip-hop band Tumi and The Volume (TATV) have announced a nationwide tour in support of their third album Pick A Dream. The album was nominated for a SAMA in the best rap album category.

Fans will most likely welcome TATV’s latest live set –  a hearty mix of their classics and the current material which includes the new radio favourite “Asinamali”. The album’s lead single brings in Zimbawean MC Zubz on the hook to ponder the attitudes to and politics of fame, money. High on concept, the black-and-white visuals inspired by Malian photographer Malick Sidibe match the song’s vintage texture. “Asinamali”  is currently on high rotation within one week of premiering on MTV Base Africa. It is also gaining popularity on alternative pan African music station Channel O.

Soul singer Zaki Ibrahim who is featured on the album will provide tour support for Tumi and the Volume in Johannesburg and Pretoria.

It should be a very nice experience come and support local music….
