SOME major jamming in the streets will take place next month at the Reggae on the Rise festival in Newtown, Johannesburg, featuring top reggae and raga artists as well as DJs.


Headlining the March 10 festival is Jamaican raga-gospel artist Anthony B, our own highly talented but underrated Colbert Mukwevho, Nkulee Dube (the late reggae icon Lucky Dube's daughter) and Tidal Waves, one of South Africa's foremost reggae talents, who are hugely appreciated overseas.

Several top notch local DJs will also be spinning their stuff at this reggae sun-splash-type concert, which will see the streets of Newtown closed so that reggae music can take over.

The DJs include Admiral and Jahseed, Fanta Jozi, Pepe aka Bigman, Nathi B, and Black Kalamawi.

All the shows will take place in the streets next to the OST Lounge on Henry Nxumalo and Bree streets in Newtown.

The festival is significant in that it is probably the first time a number of reggae and raga artists have performed under one roof, well, in one street in South Africa.

A number of musical talents have come to South Africa over recent years, particularly American R&B artists and rock-pop musicians.

There have been sporadic performances by ragga and reggae artists such as Mutabaruka, who has come to South Africa a number of times over the years to perform, particularly at the Arts Alive Festival.
