Johannesburg, South Africa

The Cape Town Jazz Orchestra invited Fred and his funk quartet to Johannesburg for a show and workshop that piggy-backed on Soul Power Week in the Congo (Brazzaville). It was another lovely experience that gave Fred a chance to visit with his old friend, South African superstar Hugh Masakela, who was a gracious host and took him out for a community event and lunch (at Sakhumzi Restaurant) in Soweto.

Enjoy these family photos, then scroll down for photos from the concert by Amy Ronnie.

  2. Amazing your blog and great pictures.So, I love everything. I think that Johannesburg is the spot to go to blend huge city society, shopping, eating and nightlife with open air undertakings, up-close natural life experiences and visits to recorded destinations. Investigate caverns and nature saves, or visit a customary town by day, then appreciate supper at a hip bistro or five-star restaurant. Furthermore in case you're a customer, bring an additional, void bag. With shopping centers, outdoors markets and spots that mix the two, you'll discover a lot of extraordinary souvenirs. Thanks all!!
