Award winning musician Thandiswa Mazwai will launch her 4th studio album - Sankofa at Carnival City at Big Top Arena.

Sankofa is a Twi word from the Akan people of Ghana. It mean to "go back and fetch what has been left behind." In our journeys we may lose our sense of self, our history, our will to fight. We may lose language or ways of being. Sankofa invites us go back and fetch what has been lost so that we can return whole.

Recorded in Johannesburg, Dakar, and New York, Sankofa combines archival Xhosa music, jazz and west African music. Largely developed with co-composer Tendai Shoko, it includes tracks produced by Meshell Ndegeocello and Nduduzo Makhatini. The work, like much of Thandiswas' previous work, celebrates Pan Africanism and is a musical conversation between South Africa, West Africa and the Diaspora.

The Sankofa Live show will present this music alongside Thandiswa's old classics. Her first solo album, Zabalaza, celebrates 20 years in 2024. She will be joined by special guests.

Doors open at 7. Show starts at 8.
