AfroGong is a Durban-based music project spearheaded by Mandla Matsha. The music is not confined to one genre; it is a fusion of influences and experiences from various codes of music, from reggae to jazz, RnB, classical, to Afrofunk.

AfroGong performs original music, and is working on an album. AfroGong has an impressive array of Durban-based musicians that reads like an image of a united Africa.

This concert is made possible by The SAMRO Foundation/Concerts SA. Concerts SA is a joint South African/Norwegian live music development project housed under the auspices of SAMRO and managed by IKS Cultural Consulting.
