Awarded the title of Presenter of the Year at the 2015 and 2016 South African Film and Television Awards (SAFTAs) as well as at the 2016 YOU Spectacular Awards, Maboe has grown year-on-year into a well-known TV presenter, singer, voice-over artist, MC, model and actor.

Amongst his many accolades, Maboe was crowned the most stylish male celebrity in South Africa at the 2014 YOU Spectacular Awards, and featured in the 2015 South African Menswear Week modelling for Presidential Shirts.

Maboe’s biggest passion by far has always been music; a burning passion he has fueled since becoming a member of the North West Children’s Choir in 1998. His love for singing manifested itself in his involvement in the well-known South African acapella boy-band, Flip a Coin, as one of the group’s lead vocalists and beat-boxers.

Hailing from the town of Potchefstroom, Maboe completed his schooling at Potchefstroom Central School and Potchefstroom High School for Boys, matriculating in 2004. Thereafter he proceeded to study for a B.Com degree in Chartered Accountancy at the North West University which he completed in 2007.

Appointed a HOPE Cape Town Goodwill Ambassador in 2014, Maboe is regularly involved in philanthropic projects that focus on education and health, such as his ongoing community work with HOPE Cape Town and riding the Cape Town Cycle Tour twice in the name of charity (with Michael Mol in 2011 for Open Gate, and in 2013 riding for Pick n Pay in support of the Velokhaya Cycling Club).

Jazz Songstress Adelia Douw

Jazz Songstress Adelia Douw

Adelia was born in a small township called Delft and started singing before she could talk. Her musical journey started as a 3 year old in Elsies River where
she used to entertain her family and friends singing ‘old school jams’. She became one of the youngest members of the church choir participating in every school concert, church play and community activities. Adelia wanted to share her love and passion for singing and music with the world.

At the age of 16 she was introduced to a programme started by Cape Outdoors Adventure, Sport and Training (COAST) and the Department of Social Development in her community, called THE DELFT BIG BAND which was under the musical direction of the legendary Ian Smith, trumpeter, singer, and music educator. This was when her dreams became a reality. Ever since then she has travelled the world with the band, visiting Sweden on two occasions to perform for Queen Sylvia of Sweden at the World’s Children’s Prize for the rights of a child after which Adelia made her debut at the Cape Town International Jazz Festival in the 2010, as one of the youngest vocalists to perform, in the process winning a scholarship to the Berklee College of Music in Boston, USA to attend their summer programme.

Upon her return from the US she went on a tour with the DELFT BIG BAND to France, performing on world renowned stages. Back in South Africa while
at college she landed the lead role of EVITA in her college production of EVITA, graduating with Merit in Performing Arts.
Adelia, as the songstress of the Delft Big Band, is a regular at corporate gigs and large scale events where she has performed in front of huge crowds and
honed her skills as a professional vocalist. In addition to performing with the very busy Delft Big Band, she performs with the likes of Ian Smith and Andrew Ford
and other jazz legends, as part of smaller quartets and trios on the jazz scene. She recently recorded a song with DJ/producer, DJ Nibblez. Recently she has
been a solo vocalist at large scale concerts such as at Nederburg Picnic Pops, the Oude Libertas Ampitheatre and the City of Lights Festival. She had the honour of
serenading Ahmad Kathrada for the “Freedom for the City” ceremony. She has held her own solo shows at the famous Crypt Jazz Restaurant and the Winchester

"Buona Sera Signorina" Oude Libertas 2012, CT Tango Ensemble

Our own Cape Town Tango Ensemble, who happens to be the only Tango Orchestra in Africa, specializes in Tango music and specifically the music of Astor Piazzolla is bringing this highly successful show to the Winelands.

Besides the live music on stage Dance Floor Hire is kindly supplying one of their magnificent Dance Floors, so during the interval and after the show there will be a Milonga (Tango social event) for those who love to dance Tango.

In “Piazzolla & Beyond” they are presenting some of the most celebrated works of Astor Piazzolla as well as works of contemporary composers, whose music was inspired by the Tango Nuevo.

Astor Piazzolla (1921-1992) tango nuevo was distinct from the traditional tango in its incorporation of elements of jazz, its use of extended harmonies and dissonance, its use of counterpoint, and its ventures into extended composition forms.
Piazzolla started his new style of music during the 1950s. It was completely rejected by the Tango purists in Argentina but it took Tango music from the dance halls of Buenos Aires to the Concert stages throughout the world. Piazzolla inspired many classical musicians to perform his music during his lifetime and after his death.

CT Tango Ensemble was established by the Classical Accordionist Stanislav Angelov in 1996. Since 1996 besides studying the music and most importantly the interpretation style of Astor Piazzolla the interest of this group of musicians spread into all styles of Tango music as well.

They have released 3 CDs (“El Tango en Africa” , “Tango Club” & “Tango Dreams), which are regularly played on Classic FM in Johannesburg & FMR in Cape Town as well as on many other radio stations in South Africa & abroad.

30 March 2011 – Premier of new South African Film “Visa Vie” in which 2 tracks from Tango Club are included in the sound track of the film – “Adios” & “Cape Town Tango”, both composed by Stanislav Angelov
13 April 2011 – “Tango Club” nominated for Best Instrumental Album for in the 17th MTN South African Music Awards.

In 2011 they were invited to tour Germany with their first concert, taking place at the prestigious Gewandhause in Leipzig, which was a great success.

Our mission: To preserve and develop an indigenous wild flower garden with plant species representative of those in the Klein Karoo and marginal Fynbos biogeoghraphical zone.

The Montagu Nature Garden was established in 1954, the year in which the village of Montagu celebrated its centenary. In 1961 the garden was proclaimed a Nature Reserve and placed in the care of the Montagu Municipality. Currently the Montagu Nature Garden Association ‘leases’ the Nature Garden on a long-term basis. The association is also a member of the Wildlife and Environmental Society of South Africa (WESSA)

It has the distinction therefore of having flora of 3 regions of the Western Cape – succulent karoo, fynbos and renoster veld. There are numerous species of succulents, fynbos, geophytes and a diversity of flowering shrubs and trees occur here. The garden is especially known for the excellent variety of Vygies (mesembryathemums), which sets the garden ablaze with colour during spring.

A 1.7km circular walking trail within the garden includes a fairly easy climb with benches at strategic intervals. From the top of Bessiekop, magnificent panoramic views of the town and the Cape Folded Mountains can be seen. Bloupunt, one of the highest peaks in the area rises in the distance. One is sure to come across a geometric tortoise, a dassie midden and sunbirds enjoying the variety of aloes on the hillside. The dam, stream and intermittent areas of fast flowing water at the bottom of the hill provide a welcome break after the walk. The area is planted with lawn and benches are placed along the stream.Tea and eats are served every Tuesday morning from 10am until 11.30am from April until end October.
Parking for the elderly is available in the garden on these days, or by arrangement.For further information and a brochure please contact the Montagu Information Office. Tel. (023) 614 2471
