Break out your lighter (or cellphone torch) and declare your love by the moon and the stars in the sky. Grammy-winning RnB group All 4 One are coming to Cape Town, joining local artists like Sasha Lee Davids, Emo Adams and Alistair Izobell for a truly Capetonian music spectacular called Music All Kaap.
The show happens on 30 March 2019 at GrandWest. And thereafter, for the first time ever, Music Alla Kaap will go on tour to Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth.
SPREADING ITS WINGS
Music Alla Kaap has become a staple of the Cape Town music calendar and a must-see event. In the past, it has showcased local and international superstars including Sipho Hotstix Mabuse, Judy Boucher, PJ Powers, Percy Sledge and Marc Lottering to name a few.
It makes its way to Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth for the first time this year. But, of course we get to catch it first here in Cape Town. And what a line-up.

All 4 One
Best known for their number 1 hit "I Swear", the California-based group is renowned for producing timeless love songs during their heyday in the 90s. The Grammy award winners have sold 20 million albums to date, and have a hit Christmas album called an All 4 One Christmas.
ALL 4 ONE NOT SINGING I SWEAR
Most pop shows use backtracks for artists to sing over. But Music Alla Kaap is keeping things authentic with a 10-piece band, hand-picked by music director Camillo Lombard, to provide backing music. Lombard is a musician, composer and educator. The self-taught pianist is also the executive director of the Cape Music Institute and pianist for the band TopDog SA.
Sasha Lee Davids has recorded a track with All 4 One called "Africa Rise". The song was written by Alistair Izobell and sent to the American group as a demo sung by Davids. They recorded it in November last year and it was released in early 2019. The song will form part of the music set list at Music Alla Kaap.
Tickets cost between R200 and R350 and can be purchased at selected supermarket outlets. Alternatively, you can book here.
