A nostalgic trip down memory lane

“Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.”

Alphonse de Lamartin

During lockdown we have taken to hosting online events, covering a variety of topics. This month our guest speaker was Sean Brokensha, fondly known as The Music Guru. Sean has worked in radio, television and live entertainment since the mid 80s. He has written, produced and directed media broadcast on DSTV, BBC, SABC and ETV. For the past two decades he has presented radio and TV shows specifically about music, and its relationship with our everyday lives.

On the 12 August, Sean took us on a musical journey and explained how music has evolved from post-war Swing, to Rock ‘roll to the Age of Aquarius. From dinner jackets, to leather jackets, to flowers in your hair. The event was nothing short of delightful, and we definitely will be getting him back soon to host another session. If there is a genre of music that you would like him to speak about, please let us know. We would love to hear your suggestions.
