The Artscape Theatre will be hosting another run of performances from the Indigenous Orchestra Ensemble this week with the highlight being a jazz musician with a canny knack of playing multiple music instruments.

Pops Mohamed, a well-known multi-instrumentalist, is a typical musician who loves music for its own sake, reported Independent Online.

His passion for music has seen him develop an interest in a myriad of music instruments, including a bird whistle, the keyboard, an African mouth bow, a didgeridoo and the guitar.

The show will tell the story of how indigenous music instruments flourished in South Africa.

It is directed by Bongani Sotshononda and with Dizu Plaatjies.

There will be a diverse selection of music on show, from mainstream tunes to indigenous sounds as well as performances from Ibuyambo dancers.

The online news provider reported that guests include Desert Rose, the duo Lynne Holmes-Ganief on piano and keyboard and vocalist Yusuf Ganief, Nyanga, Louw Bubeka,; the quartet Imbube and "the master of the African cello", Alex Goshu.

An African mouth bow is shaped like an archery bow with sound generated by the plucking of the string or scraped in the same way a violin is.
