Explores the realities of creating original, non-mainstream music in a small pond like South Africa. This is the terrain where the need to express oneself outweighs commercial considerations. A shortened version of the documentary On the road with Urban Creep sets the tone for the evening. During the discussion, the panellists, all singer/songwriters, will be encouraged to perform one or two of their works.
The session is chaired by Matthew van der Want (who didn’t give up his day job), & Chris Letcher (who made music his day job). It is rumoured that Rian Malan (who has always wanted to be a rock star) may arrive and give the chairs a hard time.
