Sharon Katz & The Peace Train with Sophiatown the Mix present Abigail Kubeka’s special birthday concert celebration on Saturday 9 February 2019 at 15:00.
Star of stage and screen, Abigail Kubeka was discovered by Miriam Makeba at age 16, and sang with Miriam for many years in the Skylarks. She’s performed for the Queen of England, for all South Africa’s major events and was named one of South Africa’s top 10 beautiful and inspirational woman achievers.
In 2001 Sharon Katz and Abigail met at a party at Miriam’s house in Joburg and have been close friends ever since. Sharon Katz, known for founding The Peace Train project and production, invited Abigail to tour with her in the US in 2011 and they recorded an album together called “Double Take”.
This special concert celebrates their musical friendship and the contribution of Mme Abigail to international arts and cultural relations. We’re delighted to host them both on return visits to Sophiatown.
