ACT & SAMRO PRESENT A MASTERCLASS BY DOROTHY MASUKU

ACT AND SAMRO PRESENT A MASTERCLASS BY SOUTH AFRICAN ICON AND LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT WINNER DOROTHY MASUKU.

The Arts & Culture Trust (ACT) invites SAMRO members to attend an afternoon masterclass with the legendary singer/ songwriter Dorothy Masuku.

Tapping into a wealth of knowledge, Masuku will speak to South African musicians about her experiences, sharing wisdom gained from an extraordinary life in South African music. Her songs have been performed across South Africa, forming a staple part of the repertoire of her contemporaries Hugh Masekela and Miriam Makeba. Now a new generation embrace and sing her music.

Masuku, or Mum D as she is affectionately known, was presented with an ACT Lifetime Achievement Award by Nothando Migogo, CEO of SAMRO, at an exclusive event held at the Maslow hotel in November last year. ‘We are very humbled to be able to honour the joy that Dorothy Masuku has brought to us all,’ said ACT Chair David Dennis. Invited guests were treated to an impromptu performance by Masuku when she broke into song mid interview and later joined Lira on stage.
