Singer and composer Neo Muyanga presents Tsohle – A revolting mass on Monday, 19 March at 9:00 pm in Courtyard C, Al Mureijah Square. Muyanga interjects abstraction into South African church hymns and mines the archive of apartheid protest songs to create a performative survey that disrupts the established musical narrative of struggle. Performed by four singers and a conducting pianist, tsohle, which means ‘all things’ in Sesotho, highlights the complexities of contemporary life in South Africa in the wake of the country’s colonial experience and asks how those who govern and those who are governed can sing the same songs.

This performance has been kindly supported by Yamaha and Thomsun.
