Raphael Saadiq and Corinne Bailey Rae to headline the DStv Delicious International Food & Music Fest

This year DStv Delicious International Food and Music Festival have outdone themselves by adding even more flavour and a world class line-up to celebrate Heritage Weekend at the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit on the 21st and 22nd of September.

International megastars Raphael Saadiq, Corinne Bailey Rae, Tiwa Savage and a host of artists from Kalawa Jazmee Records will perform live on the Delicious Main Stage in what is being tipped as the biggest DStv Delicious International Food and Music Festival to date.

If you need a living definition of delicious music, look no further than Corinne Bailey Rae who is consistent proof of that. The R&B/soul legend was the fourth female artist in British history to have her first album debut at number one.

Amongst many other nominations and awards to list, she has scooped two prestigious Grammy Awards, and her soulful songs feature in many TV series and films.

Joining Corinne Bailey Rae on the Delicious Main Stage is none other than Africa’s shining star, Tiwa Savage. Hailing from Lagos, Nigeria, Tiwa Savage has taken the world by storm. With an academic background in music and having shared the stage with the likes of Beyonce and Davido, she will bring a high musical IQ whilst keeping every person at the festival on their feet in a production that continues to wow the masses.

On Saturday, 21st September festival goers will celebrate 25 Years of Kalawa Jazmee Records on the Delicious Main Stage. This record label has not only defined culture these last 25 years, but its music and artists have played an integral role in each of our South African lives.

It is with great joy and honour that the record label and some of these culture-shifting, heritage-influencing acts will be closing off the Delicious Main Stage in a true celebration of the South Africa we love.

Other carefully handpicked performances on the Delicious Main Stage on Saturday, 21st September are the Ralf Gum All Stars featuring Monique Bingham, Mafikizolo, Kafele Bandele, Portia Monique, Ayanda Jiya, Bongi Mvuyana, Joseph Junior, and Nivalito.

The Sunday Delicious Main Stage line-up will include Ralf Gum All Stars, the “Suited” smash-hit singer Shekinah, the ever graceful Lira, and Tortured Soul featuring Lisa Shaw will bring us to our feet with their hits “Don’t Hold Me Down” and “Enjoy It Now”.

Headlining the show on Sunday 22nd September is the phenomenal artist with a deep contemporary creative vision – the epic singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer Raphael Saadiq. With an impeccable past of multi-faceted creation and soul-evolution this hugely gifted musician will no doubt pull on your heartstrings.

This August, Raphael is dropping his first solo album in eight years and it promises to bring even more magic to our ears. He has also announced that “Tony! Toni! Tone!” will be reuniting to bring our favourite hits to stages around the world! This man is pure artistic soul who never fails to impress and promises an immersive live performance that’ll usher you into your Heritage Day.
