Joni Mitchell pushed the boundaries of folk, jazz and pop and in this tribute Kerneels Breytenbach, Danie Marais and Desmond Painter discuss her life, music and words, accompanied by interpretations of her iconic songs by Lise Swart, Andries Bezuidenhout, Schalk Joubert, Riku and Jackie Lätti. In the wild 60s and 70s, Mitchell survived a long list of famous lovers, the chauvinistic music industry, and in 2015 also a brain aneurysm. She had to learn to talk, walk and play the guitar again, and made a triumphant return to the Newport Folk Festival in 2022. She turns 80 in 2023.
