Hail to the King! A Musical Story

Event information

World-renowned South African musician, songwriter, and cultural pioneer, Doctor Thokozani Mhlambi is set to mesmerize audiences with his latest musical production: Hail to the King! A Musical Story.

The 37-year-old KwaZulu-Natal composer is known for incorporating art with music, having held an artistic residency at the prestigious Cite International des Arts in Paris France, and having his music used as a soundtrack for an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

In this concert, Mhlambi presents a body of work fusing African and classical elements. It features himself on baroque cello and voice, plus five other string players. The cast also includes a 4-piece vocal ensemble.

Hail to the King is a musical story based on a site visit to the ancient Zulu capital of King Dingane. The story is a retrieval of the aura of the ancient capital of King Dingane, the Zulu emperor in the 1830s. His capital called Umgungundlovu was a site of fascination both for African communities and European settlers alike.
