Dr. Thokozani Project: African Song Cycle: Performance with the NOW Ensemble at Oppenheimer Park – a co-production with the Carnegie Centre
June 11, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Thokozani Ndumiso Mhlambi, (1984-), known professionally as Dr. Thokozani Mhlambi, is a South African composer, cellist and cultural thinker. In his music he explores the iconic cultural legacy of the region, the likes of Busi Mhlongo, Princess Magogo, Mazisi Kunene– creatively through new music, combining African and classical elements. He is often seen talking with his audiences while on stage, teaching on African innovative and dramatic forms, while gripping them in mesmeric music textures, of song and declamatory vocal lines.
