Kulcha Kwest begins on SABC1 on 14 May in a prime time slot of 18h30. Through the show, ordinary South African youth will have opportunity to connect with their culture. The show is presenter driven; hosted by the dynamic Siyabonga Mdlalose.
“Culture is our values, belief systems and way of life; Kulcha Kwest, as the name says takes young people on a cultural quest. We witness emotional journeys through case studies, as they experience, understand, engage and participate with their culture. The overall quest, at the end of the journey, shows how we begin to infuse tradition and culture into our modern lifestyles, so that it can evolve and still from an active part of our identity today. Culture can never be something old and of the past. It has relevance today, the challenge is how do we allow it to occupy our present.” says Sane Zondi, assistant commissioning editor at SABC Education.
The show involves young South Africans aged 18 to 30 as they go on a personal journey to experience and understand their culture. Kulcha Kwest is filled with knowledge about different South African cultures, traditions and practices, as well as the significance of preserving our cultures as South Africans.
