“The second installment of Thath’i Cover Okestra with the Pan African Space Station was, like it’s Johannesburg predecessor: a day-time concert, and in the same way, a child, woman and man family affair. The sound that came out of Guga S’thebe Arts and Culture Centre in Langa, Cape Town was now-now, an old-school kwaito of the future. What I saw and certainly experienced was an open, inter-generational classroom ruled by boogieing and screaming teacher-learners of all shade and size.” – Ra, Rangoato Hlasane, catalyst (with Keleketla! Library accomplice Malose Malahlela) for this coming together.

On 4 November 2012, Pan African Space Station presented Thath’i Cover Okestra LIVE at Guga’ Sthebe Theatre in Langa.

Directed by Bokani Dyer (piano) with Masello Motanapitsi Ya Legola (vocals), Shane Cooper (synths), Tito Zwane (bass guitar), Tiko Ngobeni (percussion, didge and toys), Zweli Mthembu (guitar), Simphiwe Tshabalala (drums) and Lee Thomson (trumpet).

A love letter to kwaito. Revisit the performance here.
