South African singer Ringo performs at Theatre of Marcellus
25 March 2011
Ringo Madlingozi, a phenomenon in the South African music industry, will be dazzling fans on stage at the Theatre of Marcellus this May. He will be performing a unique tribute to the care givers of the continent in his performance Ringo – The Tribute to Africa’s Mothers.
Ringo's music is known to affect people in an exceptional way as it takes them on an intensely spiritual, rhythmic and healing journey. Originally named Sindile, his mother gave him the nickname Ringo, because of his drumming and singing talents which he started displaying as early as the age of three. Giving him this name was by no means a coincidence, as his destiny and life's vision would later reveal. He believes the name Ringo describes his personality- rhythm, inspiring, nurturing, great and original.
To millions of Ringo's followers he is simply known as the one who set the country ablaze when he won the Shell Road to Fame contest with his friends and fellow band members in 1986. This talented performer is a constant crowd-puller at musical events around the country, and remains a firm favourite on the rest of the African continent and the world. Fans can expect to hear songs from his celebratory album Jayva Sbali (2010) and many more. He is still riding the high crest of his musical genius, experimenting with various rhythms and collaborations.
Ringo brings his energetic live shows, which have earned him much acclaim, to Emperors Palace from 6 - 15 May, Fridays and Saturdays at 20h30 and Sundays at 15h00.
