From 8 to 28 May 2017, the Afrikan Freedom Principle presents a program facilitated by musicians Matchume Zango (Mozambique), Cara Stacey (Swaziland) and Mandla Mlangeni (SA).
These three regional composers of different musical backgrounds will meet to create music together and to facilitate workshops and performances with local students. In these, the importance of experimentation, improvisation, research techniques and local-derived foundational compositional methods will be emphasised in keeping with the focus of the Afrikan Freedom Principle: respectfully drawing on local, southern African cultural legacy to inform new, innovative musical practice.
Spread out across various venues and educational institutions across Johannesburg, Mbabane and Maputo, Afrikan Freedom Principle aims to facilitate cultural participation at all levels through music and the arts.
The Afrikan Freedom Principle Composers Workshop is generously supported by Concerts SA and the SAMRO Foundation, the ANT Funding Grant from Pro Helvetia and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).
We invite you to join the journey of a unique musical offering between Cara Stacey, Mandla Mlangeni, and Matchume Zango.
