JOIN BANDS, NOT GANGS

A Song As A Catalyst...

MADIBA WHETU

by LOYISO BALA, feat. Elwira Standili

Written by Karien De Waal, Zulu lyrics by Phakamani Pega
18 July 2018 marked the 100th birthday of Nelson Mandela...

From April till June of 2018, 60 musicians came together pro bono to record on a song in memory of the giant legacy left by the late Nelson Mandela for his upcoming Centenary birthday.
And, as the new generation, we won’t let the fire of hope die. We are passionate about making South Africa work! And for us as musicians, this means helping our brothers and sisters who are facing tremendous problems in the Cape Flats through the transformative power of music…

The goal of JOIN BANDS, NOT GANGS is to help at-risk youth avoid, or get out of, a life of drugs and gangsterism that has become so rampant in Cape Town and the Western Cape, through the opportunity of making music instead.

You are joining us now in our EARLY DAYS.
But we intend to walk this journey for a long time…

So please help us:

Our hope with our song “Madiba Wethu” is that it will go viral and draw people to our website and to our cause
