As we celebrate Africa Day today, people across the continent recognise their strong cultural identity and common heritage. And what better way to reflect on our diversity, creativity, and successes than to attend some cool concerts happening across Africa? Using Petal Maps as your guide while listening to the coolest playlist on HUAWEI Music, you’ll be sure not to miss out on anything.
There’s no better place to begin than at The Market Theatre in Johannesburg with the Africa Month Musical Concert. This will be a day filled with music and entertainment at the Windybrow parking lot of the Theatre. There will be a host of upcoming artists from across Africa and a closing performance from the internationally renowned band, The Brother Moves On. Don’t worry about trying to find your way there. The advanced navigation of Petal Maps provides you with an innovative heads-up display mode. This means you can focus on the road knowing that all local traffic is taken into account.
If you want to have a mix of all sorts of cultures this Africa Day, also consider checking out the Tequila And Mexican Food Festival taking place at The Royal Elephant Hotel in Centurion. Featuring an impressive line-up of artists that include Refentse, Chunda Munki, and Francois van Coke you can be entertained whilst having a culinary treat to remember. Consider posting some photos or videos on Petal Maps or check out other user-submitted content to keep the party going for those who won’t be able to attend in person.
Turning our attention to Nigeria, head over to the Joy of Music Africa (JOMA) concert on 25 May.
