About the event
iPhupho L'ka Biko presents ukubuya kukaNxele noMaqoma.
Conceptualized as a response to the historic concerted silencing of certain figures in our history, who are important in understanding where we come from, where we find ourselves and where we even gather the strength to respond to certain traumatic occasions in our lifetime. there is power in the knowing of lineage and ancestry, because then we know that we are not a people who have been passive in our suffering and that resistance is no new thing to us. We go through this time of displacement, dispossession, racial capitalism and ethnic cleansing in various parts of the world, Congo, Cameroon, Sudan, Palestine and other parts of the world that are war ridden remembering that "umzabalazo umdala mntanam, waqalwa ngookhokho bethu" and realizing the power that lies, in collective and solidarity action.
Sharing the stage with the band - Zizipho Bam, Kitso Seti, Thapelo Tharaga, Blaze da Poet, Indlulamithi and Itumeleng Moeketsi.
