Neo Muyanga and Nancy Mounir’s Cape Town Meander With Cairo In Mind

Cape Town art gallery Youngblood will host a once-off music performance, by Neo Muyanga & Nancy Mounir titled, ‘Once when Cape strung Cairo’ on Saturday, 5th August. 

Many know Muyanga as a very talented multi-instrumentalist and composer, who has given life to diverse artistic investigations such as African opera and was also previously one half of the indie duo Blk Sonshine, along with fellow musician Masauko Chipembere. 

Mounir is a composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist. She specialises in recovering a now much-
forgotten microtonal tradition of popular song from Cairo’s belle epoque. She was a co-founder of Egypt’s only femme-led metal band, Massive Scar Era.

The idea is to listen to Neo Muyanga’s and Mounir’s meanderings on a plethora of instruments made out of gut, wire, steel, wood and electronic circuitry. Listening to their styles before this special evening, it seems it will be a blend of musical worlds that was simply meant to be. A real treat is in store. 

Tickets are R150 and can be purchased via Youngblood.
