New Yorkers talk about 'The Village', Parisians 'Montmartre' and in Cape Town we have the 'Bo Kaap'. The colourful houses of the Bo Kaap are home to jazz musicians, artists, sculptors, photographers and of course Muslim families whose history extends back many generations.
Mosques stretch up regally amongst both old and modern architecture. The Muezzin can be heard in varying clarity throughout the day. The call to prayer acting as a reminder to everyone what a unique, historical and valued district the Bo Kaap is to Cape Town.
