A Tribute to The Originals – Songs Of Hope Tribute to The Originals – Songs Of Hope<p>This project is  premised on using creative practice; music in this case, as  a tool to bring the diverse  Stellenbosch community together to honour and pay tribute to  two of its residents for their sacrifice in the fight for freedom in this country. “Where words fail, music speaks," says the poet Hans Christian Andersen. We can never understand or fully comprehend what Peter Mayekiso and Samson Msemme Setona went through during their incarceration on Robben Island but we can validate their sacrifice.<br></p><p>Peter Mayekiso and Samson Msemme Setona , residents of Kayamandi, Stellenbosch were amongst the first political prisoners to be taken to Robben Island were they both served time for political activities. Their story remains largely untold and undocumented, their sacrifice unappreciated and unacknowledged. Their story remains lost in the crevices and fault-lines that divide our towns and cities based on history, class, spatial planning and all things artificial yet the irony is that their very imprisonment was for ideals non-racialism, connection, unity, community and freedom.</p><p><strong>Activities will include:</strong></p><p>To honour these men, we bring to Stellenbosch one of South Africa's best known Jazz artist's Herbie Tsoaeli and his African Time Quartet to perform and contextualise honour, healing, hope and community through sound. Herbie Tsoaile has the stature, gravitas, talent and acumen to understand the significance of the project and as well as the role of creativity and music as tools to facilitate healing and community building.</p><p> </p><p>This is an initiative of Stellenbosch University in partnership with Stellenboschh Academy of Design and Photography​.​<br></p>2018-07-20T16:00:00Z2018-07-20T19:00:00ZFismar Hall
