Spend this coming weekend connecting with artists, poets, and NIROX team members over intimate conversations and experiences for either a one or two-night stay at the recently opened Farmhouse 58 … a place to connect with yourself, in nature.
Farmhouse 58 and Project 58 have put together an exclusive weekend ‘interlude’ to the NIROX Summer Jazz concert to offer you a memorable weekend experience, infusing music, art, food, and immersion in nature. On Friday afternoon, you can join everyone in the main studio residence at NIROX to listen in on Vivid Afrika rehearsing live – a unique opportunity to connect with the band ahead of the concert on Sunday November 28.
On Friday, just after sunset, join LeRoy Croft, NIROX’s Event and Operations Manager and Concert Archivist, who will facilitate a listening session, overviewing the extensive music concert archive. Expect a sonic retrospective, going back to 2017 until the present day, featuring Urban Village, Sibusile Xaba, Guy Buttery, Tananas, Madala Kunene and Mabi Thobejane. Dinner on Friday evening will feature a botanical gin pairing experience in The Lapa with Inverroche Gin.
The following day, you can choose between a sunrise or sunset hike and enjoy a Boma dinner (weather dependent) with South Africa’s National Poet Laureate, Wally Serote, with an after-dinner conversation on the history of South African Jazz. The weekend will culminate with the Jazz concert on Sunday, where you will be shuttled to NIROX in the morning. You do have the option to extend your stay over Sunday night after the show at a 25 per cent discount on the room rate.
