2020 marked the beginning of a new chapter for guerillaclassics with a concert tour through South Africa and Switzerland.

The series featured new music by the composers and musicians Neo Muyanga (born in Soweto) and Nik Bärtsch (born in Zurich), which will be performed by the Cosmic Percussion Ensemble (Zurich) alongside viola player Sarah Evans and singers Nomapostile Nyiki and Lungiswa Plaatjies (from Cape Town).

It was our aim to demonstrate what extraordinary and unique concert experiences can be created through the fusion of vastly different musical traditions, instruments, and cultural backgrounds. The series was held in a range of venues in Zurich, Cape Town, Stellenbosch, and Johannesburg.
