Azza One - Hommage du Pops Mon, 2020-04-06 12:54

Hommage to Pops (taken from a LIVE vinyl recording)

I think we all walk down some musical journey. And we are gathering the pieces together through musicians. This selection of songs was a Hommage to music my dad liked. I went and found some records which lined up with kind of the popular music from the 50’s a bit and then onto 60’s and 70’s. Because I’m in South Africa, these albums just pop up. I played the records to my parents and their friends and it brought up some memories. It also made them smile and talk to me about music. Music is an intergenerational bridge. And so I made this first show as a Hommage to sweet popular ‘old’ (does music age?) music and people. Music which myself and my dads generation would like. On a side note I also would like to play the music of elderly generations to create them a space to reminisce. Hence the idea behind doing more than one show in Hommage to Pops.

Originally aired LIVE on a11 radio in Cape Town, South Africa – the eclectic musical motions of this show, mean there’s something for everyone to discover.
