PERFORMANCE: Ebrahim Khalil Shihabs in the spotlight tonight.

Flats pianist and composer in concert.

It’s the end of the month so the jol will be vol across Cape Town.

A man with a track record of always having a good party is pianist and composer Ebrahim Khalil Shihab who was part of Pacific Express.

Now the 70-year-old is claiming his space as a soloist in the spotlight and will be in concert at the District Six Homecoming Centre (15 Buitenkant Street) tonight.

Shihab is credited with writing the Cape Town classic, Give A Little Love, made famous by his brother-in-law and late singer Zayn Adams.

He’ll be joined on stage by bassist Lionel Beukes (from Oswietie) who has been overseas for more than a decade.

Liam Webb is on drums and Buddy Wells behind the microphone and the quartet plan on having a jol.

Tickets are R120 and available online from Webtickets or call or SMS 076 415 7244 to reserve your seat.

The first ever Relay Against Racism is taking place at Vygieskraal Stadium on Saturday at 9am.

It’s a family friendly event that aims to unite Capetonians from across the City, following a recent spate of racist incidents.

Organisers say: “It’s a fun-filled day for the entire family with loads of entertainment, plenty of prizes and goodie bags so come and walk, run, sing and dance along.

They’ll be walking around the stadium track 22 times, symbolising each year of the democratic South Africa.

Entry fees start at R50 for over 13s and R40 for kids between 3 and 13 years old and pensioners.

Contact Sharon on 021 391 0140 for details or email for an entry form, further details and payment options.

The first 2 500 entrants will receive a free gift.
