Dr Jonas Gwangwa’s “Amandla Cultural Ensemble: The Production” comes home to South Africa

In 1980, Dr Jonas Gwangwa brought the theatrical protest musical Amandla to the world.  Now for the first time, it is coming home and promises a cutting-edge theatrical production that will enthrall audiences, inspire youngsters and showcase the country’s finest artistic talent.   The Amandla Cultural Ensemble was originally developed and produced by Gwangwa in Angola. Created to lobby support for liberation movements in exile, Amandla galvanized international solidarity movements and communicated the injustices of the Apartheid system to the global community.
