Bridges For Music are proud to announce their new partnership with the legendary Glastonbury Festival, providing the opportunity for two Township DJ's from Cape Town, South Africa to be showcased at this years festival. Thibo Tazz, an urban deep and contemporary house DJ, and DJ Fosta, will play Silver Hayes, the first booking of it's kind in the area formerly known as the dance village.
Partners for the trip are British Council Connect ZA initiative, an arts programme that aims to build cultural connections between young people aged 18-35 in the UK and South Africa, and The Department of Arts and Culture of South Africa, forming part of The SA-UK Seasons 2014 & 2015. Pioneer DJ have also come on board providing funding in support of the project.
"I believe music is a driving force for the youth in Langa and Im fully comitted to take Langa to the World" says Fosta.
"This project fits perfectly with our British Council Connect ZA project, it is about creating opportunity and also ensuring that talent gets an opportunity on stages that are about the quality of the music, and not where the artists come from. Glastonbury is the best festival around, these artists will add to the quality of the event and hopefully encourage more young people in the UK to explore exciting contemporary South African creativity." Tom Porter - Head of Arts, South Africa
"It is so inspiring to be able to offer these guy such a powerful life changing opportunity and see the dreams that we have for BFM come to life" Trenton Birch - Bridges For Music, African Director
