Performers take part in the annual Cape Town Minstrels Carnival in Cape Town yesterday. This event, which is deeply rooted in Cape Malay culture, gathers more than 13,000 performers in about 70 groups of musicians, dancers and other troupe members in brightly coloured outfits and ornately painted faces, who parade through the city, playing Ghoema music (comic songs often accompanied by brass, or banjo).
