(Thobekile Mbanda)

Art For Humanity from the City Campus, Durban University of Technology will present an Artist Talk with Thobekile Mbanda on June 11, 2019, at 12h00.

Mbanda is a conceptual artist, community activist and uses music as her medium and muse. Centring her work around the preservation, promotion and development of indigenous instruments and music fuels her current project, Songs of our Ancestors.

Among her trajectory of creative pursuits: in 2014 Mbanda wrote and produced Barbados-based Princess Magogo the Rise of A Star, she currently works at Art for Humanity as Project Manager, has performed locally and internationally, and is constantly developing her repertoire for working with young people and the intersection of music, learning, decolonisation and freedom.

This event is made possible through a grant by the National Lotteries Commission.
