Earlier this year Cape Town and Jozi got the chance to see Techno god, Richie Hawtin for the very first time on South African soil. It was an honour to have such a legend down here but I don’t think anyone had any idea what was about follow. Enter Bridges For Music…
In February 2013 Richie Hawtin joined Bridges For Music for his first South African tour. Alongside South Africa house icon Black Coffee they launched various workshops and free events in the townships of Langa (Cape Town) and Soweto (Johannesburg).
These ‘” township ” areas are infamous legacies of the apartheid segregation and still represent a day to day struggle for the majority of its population. But music is becoming a driving force for development and a great tool to break down socio-economic boundaries.
