Zolani Mahola, The One Who Sings leads this year’s lineup with the Sun-Set@Baxter outdoor concert series, on Sunday 30 January 2022, at 6pm, in the landscaped garden of Cape Town’s iconic theatre.
The season was introduced to welcome the summer and to create alternative, memorable experiences for audiences. The pandemic and lockdown restrictions meant that The Baxter had to come up with innovative ways of getting patrons and the public, back to theatre.
The One Who Sings
Mahola, who now goes as The One Who Sings, will perform songs from her recently released debut solo album, Thetha Mama, on 30 January 2022 at 6pm.
She is no stranger to The Baxter’s stages where, in 2019, she launched her solo career by writing and performing in her one-woman show The One Who Sings, which won her the prestigious Fleur du Cap award for Best Actress in a Musical. In 2020 she performed with Gregory Maqoma in Baxter Back on Stage.
Storyteller, soulful singer, award-winning actress and an inspirational icon, The One Who Sings, is well-loved and respected by South Africans for unifying the country through music and bridging social, racial and cultural divides.
Since the start of her solo career in 2019, The One Who Sings has performed with multiple Grammy Award winning cellist Yo-Yo Ma in January 2020, and later that same year she revealed her first solo single “Remember Who You Are” ahead of her solo album Thetha Mama which has just been released to great reviews.
Sun-Set@Baxter audiences will be some of the first to experience live, her unique new sound, which she describes as “a modern folk-infused style, with electro-soul and a touch of Amapiano.”
