Sophiatown Costume Cape Town

Jive at your next dress up party in Cape Town and be the belle of the ball in this sunshine yellow number!

Sophiatown’s jazz carried wonderful flavours of American jazz, ragtime and blues, infused with a deep sense of African musical traditions, which contributed to the marabi music played in shebeens.
Kwela was distinctive pennywhistle street music which evolved from marabi and remains a signature musical influence.
The music from this era like – Lemmy Mabaso’s ‘Cornbread and Blackeyed Peas’, Pat Matshikiza and Kippie Moeketsi’s ‘Tshona’, Hugh Masekele’s ‘Thuma Mina’ can still get us up and jiving

This dress was showcased at one of our 2020 workshops where we explored the music styles like Marabi and Kwela from the 50’s and 60 ‘s era to inspire us today.
