Experience the exuberance, energy and soulful sounds of South Africa’s greatest songs.
At the entrance to the historic Boland town of Stellenbosch lies Khayamandi - meaning wonderfull nice place to live in isiXhosa. Within the myriad of winding streets lined with corrugated iron sheet houses and with one of the best views of the majestic Simonsberg, is the AmaZink theatre and restaurant – South Africa’s first Township Theatre Restaurant. On offer is very ‘lekka’ (nice) ‘kasi’ (township) cuisine designed to offer the very best of South African flavours and a music experience honouring legends such as the late great queen of South African music Miriam Makeba, the indomitable Johnny Clegg, the eclectic home grown beats of Mango Groove and many, many more.
AmaZink Live tells the story of a township through the magic of music. Songs included in the live performance include such familiar favourites as Pata Pata, The Click Song, Special Star, Skokiaan, Impi and African Dream, to name but a few. This culturally authentic musical encourages audience interaction and a chorus of entertaining waiters not only serves guests, but makes them a part of the show.
AmaZink was the runner up for the 2011 Mayoral Tourism Award for Best New Tourism Business and was nominated by the Woordfees in 2012 for the WoordTrofee for Best Contemporary Music Production.
