  • Ciacona & Tshikona - Dance from North and South

    7:13

    MIAGI addresses the issue of ethnic relations through its all-inclusive programming. By offering an international platform for intercultural creative dialogue, MIAGI has brought people together that would otherwise never meet.

    One such MIAGI encounter took place in May 2008 at Cape Town City Hall when Thikundwi kha Sialala -- Venda Ngoma Drummers and Dancers met the musicians and the audience of the Cape Philharmonic Orchestra ( Please note that this video displays a cut version of the work, with rough 'home video' transitions -- we apologise, but think that the material is of such interest that we wish to present it anyway and trust that the impression rendered does the full composition right.

    About Ciacona & Tshikona -- Dance from North and South:

    Intercultural Composition for Venda Ngoma Drummers and Dancers, Kudu-Horns and Classical Orchestra by South African composer Hans Huyssen ( Commissioned by MIAGI in 2007

    This composition relies on a Western orchestra to meet the demands of the concert situation, in which the music itself makes the running and the audience is involved only passively, but its essential structure is derived from an African from of musical expression embedded in the social occasion, when people gather to participate actively. MIAGI sets out to provide a forum for both approaches.

    At the start recurring variations are grouped into larger sections. In the chaconne (ciacona) -- a form of early European music -- a single short pattern occurs repeatedly, as in traditional African music. However, European composers have always opted for variation whereas African musicians express their participation of time as a cyclical entity by persisting in the repetition of the original material.
    Tshikona is the Venda national dance and the most important form of communal music. Tshikona is 'the time when people rush to the scene of the dance and leave their pots to boils over': it 'makes old men throw away their sticks and dance' and 'brings peace to the countryside'. Tshikona needs a set of drums -- ngoma, murumba, and mutungwa -- and many dancers, each playing a differently tuned reed-pipe. The music is structured so that each participant provides just a single note, like a coloured strand in a woven cloth. To play one's part of the melody while moving in harmony in a large crowd of performers and spectators generates individuality in community and so combines self with others in a way fundamental to Venda culture.
    Soon after the tshikona ensemble has been introduced, its energy engulfs the whole orchestra, drawing everyone into the swirl of a musical carousel in which eventually even the Western instruments sacrifice their individualistic expression and succumb to the excitement of an ecstatic communal experience.
    It remains to remark on the striking similarity of the ancient Italian version of ciacona and tshikona. The first historic record of a chaconne mentions it as a 'wild and sensual' Mexican dance imported into sixteenth-century Spain. Could this be etymological evidence of an ancient connection between American and African cultures? It's and intriguing thought!

    About Thikundwi kha Sialala -- Venda Ngoma Drummers and Dancers:

    Thikundwi kha Sialala is an exceptionally skilled Venda traditional dance and ngoma drum ensemble. It is made up of 40 women and two men. The group hails from Limpopo where, with the encouragement of the chief, it has won numerous regional dance competitions. Music plays and important role in shaping the social fabric of the Venda and is not separated from dance: dancing and drumming form a unity that conveys emotions, wisdom, history and spiritual interaction. Thikundwi kha Sialala has worked with MIAGI since the 2003 MIAGI African Heritage concert, receiving well deserved national recognition.

    The course starts on 28 June and will conclude on 9 July. The musicians aged between 12 and 25 are drawn from across South Africa and are from not only the major metropoles, but also range from Poffadder to Toekomsrust - truly representative of South Africa.

    Sakhile Humbane, a flautist from Durban, said, I've learnt a tremendous amount about orchestral and wind ensemble playing that I would never have received from anywhere else in South Africa, not to mention the amazing friends I've had the opportunity to make. This is the most wonderful experience I have had thus far in my life. It's an opportunity to play fantastic music, make wonderful friends and see new places.

    Over the past twenty-one years, The Bahamas National Youth Orchestra has performed countless times throughout The Bahamas. They have even performed internationally by special invitation of the South African Minister of Culture who, when on a visit to The Bahamas, listened to several bands and selected The Bahamas National Youth Orchestra to visit South Africa for two weeks, performing there eight times. Moreover, Bahamian Independence Celebrations just would not be the same without The Bahamas National Youth Orchestra.
    Of the many hundreds of young people who have been a part of The Bahamas National Youth Orchestra over the years, many have gone on to become professional musicians, with several currently a part of the Royal Bahamas Police Force Band as well as the Royal Bahamas Defence Force Band.
    Today The Bahamas National Youth Orchestra receives a small annual grant from the Government to help fund its work. Duke Errol continues to look for promising youngsters to be a part of this musical family, but he emphasizes that they must have a Grade 2 Level in Reading Music to apply.
    As they embark on their next twenty years, The Bahamas National Youth Orchestra looks forward to continuing to make music and continuing to make an impact on the lives of young Bahamians.

  • Star School Choir in Helsingborg, pt 2

    56

    This is the Star School Choir singing live in Helsingborg, Sweden! These boys and girls are magnificent..I know because I was there I heard them i met them and I spent an entire day with them.
    They don't have much in their life almost nothing..but still they stand there and sing from the bottom of their heart because they want changes, they want help, they want to live a normal life just as everybody else.. and they DESERVE it!


    The idea for Star School was born when the founders saw how people in South Africa, not least children, were stricken by HIV and AIDS. In cooperation with leaders, behavioural scientists, communicators and musicians from South Africa and Sweden, they took on the challenge to create a programme, which would inspire and support students to achieve their dreams and, most importantly, an AIDS-free life.

    The Star School Project inspire young people in southern Africa to live an AIDS-free life and to fulfil their dreams. Star School is a sustainable, long-term project and integrated responsibility is a key factor in the programme. The JAC Initiative Star School Project is a non-profit organisation with no links to political parties or religious organisations and is one of the first projects within JAC Initiative (JAC stands for; Jobs, AIDS, Conservation). Star School Project is also part of the Thanda Foundation.

    Founders of JAC Initiative Star School Project are Dan and Christin Olofsson from Sweden.

    The National Youth Orchestra, the green and gold team of our most talented young musicians, is embarking on an adventure in cutting-edge South African performance in a new collaboration with Bombshelter Beast, a genre-busting music collective of some of SA’s most colourful and innovative musicians.

    Think Black Cat White Cat meets Brenda Fassie – add an opera singer, a polish refugee, a Manchester born kwaito star and SA’s most cunning linguist, and you have half the picture. The other half is best experienced live! Be taken on a journey from baroque to boeremusiek, comedy to kwaito, and a lot in between – a new South African sound that’s best served hot! Bring comfortable shoes to dance in – your feet will thank you. Shows on 11, 12 and 14 December in Johannesburg.


    National Youth Orchestra concerts are made possible by the National Lotteries Commission, the Department of Arts and Culture, the SABC Foundation, the Academy of Sound Engineering and SAfm.

    Thank you to Black Gosling for producing this awesome video!

    A short introduction to the National Youth Orchestra of Kenya. This a new project created by the Art of Music Foundation, Kenya. Clips are from the first round of auditions, the first residential training course in August 2010, and performances in August, October and December 2010.

    The objectives of the project include training instrumental teachers to raise the standard of art music in Kenya, and providing opportunities for talented young musicians to benefit from intensive training. Future plans include rolling out the programme countrywide and developing a network of feeder orchestras. At the moment some instruments are not available in Kenya, so there is a plan to train people on these: oboe, bassoon, horn, cello, viola and double bass.

    The music recording on this video is a live performance by the orchestra of Handel's La Rejouissance from the Royal Fireworks Music (followed by a rehearsal of Tchaikowsky's Trepak.
