David Kramer Band
Young Stars: Traditional Cape Malay Singers

Zankel Hall
The fascinating folk music from the Cape region of South Africa is explored by two groups in this concert. Composer, guitarist, singer-songwriter, and tireless champion of Cape musical traditions, David Kramer performs with a lineup of top musicians from Cape Town and the Karoo desert. New York audiences also have a rare opportunity to hear a Cape Malay choir—the Young Stars: Traditional Cape Malay Singers, a 15-voice male choir led by Moeniel Jacobs. They perform music from Cape Town that combines Dutch folk songs and Afrikaans comic songs with colorful inflections and ornaments from vocal traditions as far afield as Malaysia, Arabia, and East Africa.
