Cape Town is South Africa's party town and is famous for its Reggae music, dancing and culture. The sounds of Bob Marley and Peter Tosh are everywhere alive and kicking! There are few better things to do on a Friday night than follow the roots of Cape Town Reggae, enjoying Rastafarian snacks (Ital) and dancing to Reggae tunes.
Reggae has deep roots in Cape Town and has been the music of political dissent and party-going pleasure. The songs of icons like Bob Marley and Peter Tosh still resonate strongly with South Africa's struggles.
On this Friday night journey, you will discover more about reggae and Rastafarian culture in Cape Town. You will meet a reggae storyteller for some Rastafarian Ital snacks (vegetarian), and listen to stories about reggae. Take advantage of this rare opportunity to hear anecdotes about pioneering reggae musicians and the stories behind their characters.
Experience the almost religious fervor of the Friday night Marcus Garvey Dancehall session, or visit a local reggae musician for an at-home performance. Whatever happens, if you are a fan of reggae and want to experience Cape Town more deeply, then there is no better way to spend a Friday night.
