The University of KwaZulu-Natal’s School of Arts-Music presents Siyaphambile Asibeke Emuva which means “We are moving forward not looking back”.

This expression refers to the important strides being made in the African Music & Dance programme as witnessed through its work over the past years, and the outstanding students it repeatedly produces. This semester will be no different when the programme presents the end of semester lunch hour concert featuring various ensembles composed of African Music and Dance students from levels 1 to 3.

In full authentic costumes and traditional dress, the concert will include music and dance from both South Africa as well as different African countries, reflecting what is studied in the programme which aims to instil a strong sense of Africanism , ensuring that our African heritage is not forgotten.

The concert tkes place on May 19 from 12h15 to 13h05 in Howard College Theatre on the University of KwaZulu-Natal’s Howard College campus. Moe information from Dr P A Opondo on 031 260 1045 or email: or Thulile Zama on 031 260 3385 or email:
