 Shwekey in Cape Town


International Jewish Music Superstar Yaakov Shwekey is making his first ever appearance in Cape Town on 16 August as a part of his globakl "Cry no More" tour..

The Cape Town International Convention Centre will be playing host to this remarkable event that will draw 1,500 Capetonians to one of the largest events that our community has ever seen.

The purpose of this event, in addition to the “Night at the City” reception benefitting Chabad of the West Coast, is to give our community an experience of world-class Jewish music and entertainment.

Shwekey’s versatile rhythms combine his father’s rich Egyptian/Syrian Sefardi heritage, his mother’s traditional Ashkenazi background and his own American  upbringing into an eclectic mix of melodies that delight the senses of his hundreds of thousands of fans around the world.

His Cape Town appearance will be conducted by his renowned producer Yochi Briskman who is bringing his own six piece band all the way from Israel and the highly talented Visual Artist Aviyad who together will be creating a night of Jewish entertainment, spirit and sensation, the likes of which Cape Town has never seen before.
