The Amandla Freedom Ensemble led by Standard Bank Young Artist for Jazz 2019 Mandla Mlangeni, will once again bring The Oratorio of a Forgotten Youth.

The collaborative endeavour will culminate in an album launch and grand performance of Jozi's strongest forces within the jazz, classical and indigenous music scene. The Oratorio features The Brother Moves, The Vivacious Sounds Choir, acclaimed sand artist Tawanda Mu Afrika, esteemed academic, pianist and scholar Yonela Mnana and a libretto by award winning poet and theatre practitioner, Lesego Rampolokeng.

The Oratorio of a Forgotten Youth is supported by The Wits School of Arts, National Institute for the Humanities and Social Sciences. This creative pairing  seeks to be the springboard for the production and execution of bold new ideas of reimagining spaces for creative discourse.
