Cape Town - South Africa’s biggest food and music extravaganza – the not-to-be-missed DStv Delicious International Food & Music Festival, presented by Nedbank – makes its debut in Cape Town on Sunday, 28 December and promises to be the holiday season’s hottest ticket.

The event promises a feast of food to tantalise the taste buds as well as world-class entertainment from a line-up that includes UK acid jazz and funk pioneers Brand New Heavies and British club favourites Soul II Soul. They will be joined by award-winning South African acts Freshly Ground, MiCasa and The Soil along with Cape Town’s modern folk artist Jeremy Loops in a day-long feast of food and music, aimed at those with a sense of adventure and a passion for the tastier side of life.

Two quick questions to the Brand New Heavies:

During your tenure travelling and performing as a band, do audiences in the various countries have different preferential songs to others?

Interesting question. It tends to do with which tracks were released where. For example Midnight At The Oasis was only a single in Europe and Japan. So it was bigger there. Having said that though there are songs which are a hit everywhere – Never Stop, Stay This Way, You Are The Universe. All the Brand New Heavies classics.
Given that you’ve been to South Africa for the Johannesburg leg of the Dstv Delicious International Food and Music Festival, what hot spots have you been to thus far? Have you and the band done any touring?

To be honest on that particular trip we were in and out of Joburg within a couple of days so we didn’t get a lot of time to look around. Although a few peeps went to Soweto. We’ve been in Cape Town a few times so we’ve done most of the tourist locations there. We had some great times. We went to the winelands. South Africa is such a beautiful country.
