REWIND - Silver Fez: Singing the Cape Malay Way

Please Log in or Register to watch this video.

The melodious sound of male choirs drifts from the derelict buildings and backyards of the notorious Cape Flats suburbs in Cape Town, South Africa. These are some of the most violent suburbs of the world, where the all-male choirs provide an antidote to the sound of gunfire. This 2009 film is set around Cape Town's banjo-led male choirs who compete each year in the colourful Silver Fez choral festival.
