Fazielah Williams has lived in and loved her Mother City since birth. Having lived all over the Peninsula during her childhood, she now calls the picturesque City Bowl home and likes nothing more than watching the sun set over Table Bay from the window of her apartment.
A lover of the arts and proud Cape Town fanatic, Fazielah began her writing career by spending many hours as a child conjuring fantastical stories that featured independent heroines from faraway lands who saved the Prince instead. This Capetonian princess has enjoyed stints as a magical arts PRO and TV publicist before finding her calling as a travel writer.
When not waxing lyrical about the Fairest Cape’s most loved attractions and activities and embarking on unexpected adventures, Fazielah can usually be found taking in a show at one of the City’s fabulous theatres.
We want more! We want more!
This was the refrain of the crowd at the Cape Town International Jazz Festival free concert on Wednesday 3 April, 2013.
Held annually on the chic Greenmarket Square, the free concert serves as a precursor for the highly anticipated Cape Town International Jazz Festival at the Cape Town International Convention Centre, to be held this year on Friday 5 and Saturday 6 April.
A pleasing change from the bustling curio stalls to be found there during the day, Greenmarket Square was brimming with food stands, dancers and, of course, jazz lovers.
Fanatics were treated to sets by some of the festival’s headliners, including local musos Brand New Heavies, Jimmy Nevis, and Jimmy Dludlu.
The Heavies, Nevis and Dludlu will be joined by the likes of soul diva Jill Scott, Gregory Porter and others at the two-day festival.
