Mzansi's Other Voices | Bongani Ndodana-Breen || Radcliffe Institute

As part of the 2019–2020 Fellows' Presentation Series at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, Bongani Ndodana-Breen RI '20 challenges entrenched notions about the value of indigenous African culture in the discourse on South African classical music and its historic lack of representation of black composers.

Contained in this presentation is a musical recording of Fela Sowande's "African Suite for Strings" and a video recording of a ritual dance by Mozambique's Nyanga Nyengwe community.
