Dizu Plaatjies, Professor of African Music at the SA College of Music, is one of South Africa’s leading traditional artists and cultural historians. He is the founder of the music group Ibuyambo and former leader of the globally celebrated traditional group, Amampondo, who recorded and toured locally and internationally in the 1980s and 90s. The son of a traditional healer, Plaatjies’s upbringing in Lusikisiki, immersed him in Mpondo culture and traditions. His ability to revive, revamp and communicate old cultural practices has led to countless engagements locally and abroad. UCT Ibuyambo Orchestra brings you “Camagu” to honour the career of Prof Plaatjies as he ends his tenure at UCT.
