Description

Amathongo means “ancestral spirits”, and music accompanying performance by the legendary Madosini, rings totally true for this production. The band consists of Pedro Espi-Sanches, Hilton Schilder, Jonny Blundell and Lungiswa Plaatjies, who forms the most appropriate backdrop for Madosini’s chanting, story telling, singing and usage of ancient instruments. The genre is a mix of traditional African genres, jazz, ballads – always fluid, creative and full of wonderful improvisation by highly skilled performers. Previous shows had the audience absolutely enchanted – a very spiritual project
