Live Music And Dance Showcase Tribute For Nelson Mandela
The Rainbow Academy will be celebrating the life and legacy of Mandela in a special performance of South African Jive, Jazz Pop and Dance by students of The Rainbow Academy on the 18th of July 2014, Mandela’s Birthday. Our performance will take place at Mandela Rhodes Place Hotel and Spa and is in conjunction with their own 67 minutes of service/charity for the day. Mandela Rhodes Place and Spa are actively involved in community upliftment and are one of our founding sponsors since our inception in 2010.
The programme line-up includes: South African Jazz performed by our various Rainbow Academy Jazz Bands with signature arrangements & compositions by Abdullah Ibrahim, Moses Moleka, Alvyn Dyers and a number of their own original works. The Rainbow Academy choir will perform African Choral renditions of Thula Sizwe and The Anthem and also break it down with a vibrant, energetic medley of African traditional, pop and township music that encompasses our history and heritage as The Rainbow Nation.
