Cape Town Goema Orchestra :: Saturday 28 August 2010

FROM PUNK THROUGH PENTHOUSE TO THE UNIVERSITY

Mac McKenzie has always pushed the boundaries of Goema, the rhythmic groove at the heart of Cape Town’s carnival culture. During the 80s, he injected defiance into the idiom with The Geniunes, creating lightning-speed Rock arrangements and the resistance anthem “Struggle.” In 2002, Mac guided Goema into a more refined arena with The Goema Captains of Cape Town, cloaking the Cape vibe in Cool Jazz. Now Mac’s back with an orchestra to boot! Steering Goema into Classical territory, Mac McKenzie has assembled The Cape Town Goema Orchestra to showcase a composition entitled “Goema Symphony No. 1.”
