Cape minstrels group performing at the Green Point Track in Cape Town, 1907 (Martin, 2000:366). By the 1900’s New Year celebrations in the streets of Cape Town was a common occurrence. There was also a measure of competition which came into being between seranaders, clubs and bands even though competition remained informal. The Coon festival post-Apartheid. The lyrics to Give me Hope Johanna (Martin, 1999:163). Among the political turmoil just before the elections in 1994, the minstrels united under the theme of Peace in our Land, symbolized by a badge with two white doves sewn onto their uniforms. The song which became popular the time was that of Give me hope Johanna, a ghoemaliedjie which was about a girl named Johanna and it is said that this song celebrated miscegenation, which is appropriate given the context.
Tulipa 'Cape Town' is an early flowering variety, being a bright beacon in the spring garden. The flowers can remain for several weeks, which is an added bonus early in the year when flowers are harder to come by in the garden.
