Sounds of Resistance: The Liberation Concert to Celebrate Mandela’s Legacy with Song during Africa Month

Few, if any, of the towering figures of the 20th century have inspired as many people, or as many songs, as Nelson Mandela did in his lifetime.

On what would have been his centennial birthday, it is worth pausing to consider not only the legacy and achievements of former South African president Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, but also on the rich musical associations in his life.

To be held at the Joburg Theatre on May 25, The Liberation Concert will for the first time see a fully fledged South African cultural production involve artists from across the world in a once-off and unique performance, curated especially for Africa Month featuring a line-up of artists such as the Grammy award winning Juan de Marcos – architect of the Buena Vista Social Club, Mamelodi’s ‘The Voice’ Vusi Mahlasela, master kora player N’Faly Kouyate, Italian jazz singer Rossella Graziani, vocalist and percussionist Cyril Neville from New Orleans’ legendary Neville Brothers, guitarist and producer Phil Manzanera of Roxy Music and Pink Floyd fame. Rapper Stilo Magolide whose lyricism and bars capture modern South African life also adds to the bill alongside composer Ernie Smith, singer Pu2ma Tiso and the SAMA nominated jazz vocalist Zoe Modiga.
