Street intersections, bus terminals, parking lots, train platforms, cafe corners or busy shopping centres - no matter where in the world you go, there will always be buskers sharing their craft.
Now, one of Cape Town's most iconic destinations, the V&A Waterfront will host the first ever buskers festival in South Africa.
The festival will take place between 6 - 9 October and feature international acts, local street performers and some artists from the 2016 National Arts Festival.
At least 30 acts will perform at venues across the V&A Waterfront, free of charge, in an effort to help recognise and highlight busking as an art form.
At the same time, Capetonian filmmaker Dayne Malan is working on a documentary, titled The Great Busk.
The documentary hopes to capture the voices and stories of musical buskers from across the world as they come together to create a song (though never having met).
Malan wants to profile 10 buskers from London, Berlin, Mumbai, Beijing, Rio De Janeiro, New Orleans, New York, Marrakesh, Cape Town and Istanbul.
I want to capture people from different cultures and races with different instruments. I want to tell their great stories.— Dayne Malan, filmakers
