Alongside these performances, you can also look forward to Boney M. featuring Liz Mitchell with their hits that dominated the European charts, such as Daddy Cool, Ma Baker, Belfast, Rivers of Babylon, Brown Girl in the Ring, Rasputin, and Mary’s Boy Child.

Sarah Struys, Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden events manager, says that Kirstenbosch is thrilled to be having Boney M. featuring Liz Mitchell perform for the Cape Town public. “Yes, the real Boney M. featuring Liz Mitchell are coming to Kirstenbosch! Boney M. and the former lead singer of the group, Liz Mitchell were not only the disco cult band of the ‘70s and ‘80s but remain a living legend of the entire disco era. We are looking forward to singing along to those many Boney M. Christmas hits on 23 December.”
