Leon Erasmus & his fans
Under Joburg Skies welcomes Leon Erasmus and his Yebo! Studios on the second floor. Leon Erasmus left the Bassline and found a new home, offering the same service, more space and spectacular views from the Under Joburg Skies venue on the roof top.
The initiative hosted some one hundred guests to present core elements of the Under Joburg Skies project.
Representatives from government departments, city council and international organizations jumped at the chance to experience the first live performance on top of the project’s venue. In the vanguard of winter, a two-hour music show presented by MC Jolene Martin made the audience ignore the cold and strong winds blowing through Bez Valley.
Arranged by musical director Zwai Bala and filmed by film director Zola Maseko, more than 30 South African and international artists performed on the 50 square meter stage, built on the roof top of The LOFT. Sunset over downtown and Hillbrow were the amazing backdrop.
With two musical sets, the initiative presented its commitment for preserving South African heritage, supporting young talents, encouraging intercultural exchange and conducting workshops for artists. Look for yourself:
