Zakifo Philosophy Echoes Africa Day

Today marks Africa Day, the celebration of the creation of the union of Africa on 25 May 1963. This day commemorates cultural diversity across the African continent. Understanding that “Music is the language of us all”, the Zakifo Music Festival supports everything the African union strives for, with a diverse line up from musical artists. 17 out of the 25 groups and individuals who are participating in this year’s festival are from Africa.
The fifth annual Zakifo Music Festival lands on Durban’s shores over two consecutive weekends from 24 May until 1 June with a series of intimate pop-up bespoke concerts in venues in and around Durban showcasing a myriad genres and styles in a series of concerts, workshops, industry talks and artists collaborations.
The festival culminates in an afternoon “It’s What You Need” concert in Durban’s Botanic Gardens on 1 June from 3pm.
