Chilled out Mondays at Asoka with Sylvestre Kabassidi
The smooth acoustic sounds of Sylvestre Kabassidi live at trendy Asoka bar
Asoka bar, long-timehost to the Cape’s trendier crowd, has slotted in a series of sensational nights of live music; featuring Sylvestre Kabassidi every Monday in April.
Occupying prime real estate on bustling Kloof Street, this popular cocktail bar set in an elegant Victorian House normally has a lot to offer, but chilled out Mondays may be the best addition yet. .
Sylvestre Kabassidi is a rebel with a sensitive soul whose music breaks stereotypes and takes African song into a new dimension. Armed with acoustic guitar and accompanied by percussion and rich vocals, Sylvestre is part of a quiet revolution in African music that is passionate, classic, and expressive.
Representing the new generation of African artists whose music emphasizes fragile melodies and poetic lyrics, his music is cosmopolitan, yet rooted in tradition, simple in arrangement, but rich in sentiments.
Without a doubt, Asoka’s stylish interior and unique oriental influence – the centerpiece being an olive tree (one of Cape Town’s oldest) that reaches through the ceiling – is a worthy complement to the seasoned musician.
To avoid disappointment make sure to reserve a table early (see Asoka contact details below).
Mondays needn’t be drab, in fact there’s plenty to do and see on the bluest day of the week: why not skip the supermarket queues and meander through one of Cape Town’s Monday markets, or pretend it’s Saturday and keep yourself busy with things to do on a Monday in Cape Town.
