Afrikaans cultural activist and musician, Quintin Goliath, who goes by the stage name Jitsvinger, will perform at Rollingwood Surf and Skate Store in Muizenberg on Youth Day, Saturday June 16.

The event will headline Strategis, a track from the Jitsologie EP, which pays tribute to the 1985 Trojan Horse Massacre in Athlone.

The Slow Life event will also premiere his latest video, as a prequel to the Knapgat series of remixes from his Jitsologie EP.

“I am really looking forward to this performance and the launch of the Knapgat series of remixes. The audience can definitely look forward to an audiovisual adventure through rhymes, riffs and remixes from my debut album, to the most recent releases,” says Goliath.

Jitsologie, he says, takes its name from the Afrikaans slang term for cool, jits, and refers to a study of what it means to be cool.

“The remixes are especially aimed at the youth to encourage their own authenticity and identity through music,” says Goliath.

The event will be hosted by local actress Kay Smith and the audience can also look forward to the sounds of old school-inspired mixes by DJ Fingaz and Vintage Blue.

Tickets can bought through Quicket.
