(Madala Kunene)

South Africans of all generations are familiar with the tragic tales of forced removals, scattered through the country’s history, removals that devastated whole communities and left them in pieces. From Sophiatown to District Six, it is artists who would pick up these pieces years later, and retell the forgotten stories of legendary personalities and places that kept a cultural heart beating inside the body of a wounded country (Ewok). No-one can tell the Umkhumbane story like Durban’s beloved “Bafo”, Madala Kunene.

Kunene will perform at the KZNSA Gallery 166 Bulwer Road, on June 14 at 18h00. Admission R60 booked through the Arts Cafe on 031 201 9969. Also available will be light meals, a full bar and big-screen movies for the youngsters.
