PLAYLIST: The Buyel’Ekhaya Music Festival is gonna rock!

Home time! I just wrapped up my exams and I’m currently packing for the holidays. One of the things that I am looking forward to this December is the Buyel’Ekhaya Music Festival which will be held in East London. The festival celebrates its 6th year and the line-up is insane. They are even going to do a tribute to Brenda Fassie who died 10 years ago. I am definitely looking forward to it.

The line-up consists of Papa Wemba, Oliver Mtukudzi, Ray Phiri & Stimela, Trompies, Mafikizolo, The Soil, Zahara, Uhuru, Berita, DJ Ganyani and DJ Tira. So as one does, I have compiled a playlist so that I can sing along to all my favourites from some of these artists. I don’t want to miss a single lyric. Check out my playlist below.

Zahara – Impilo

Oliver Mtukudzi – Todii

DJ Ganyani – Xigubu

DJ Ganyani – Be There

Berita – Thandolwethu

Ray Phiri and Stimela

Mafikizolo – Khona
