Valanga Khoza left South Africa in 1976, exiled along with many other young people because of their struggle against apartheid or racism. The music and stories he has since created reflect the places he has been and the people he has touched throughout his journey across the world as a political refugee, finally settling in Australia.
Valanga and his band will take you on a journey from rich vocal harmonies, rhythmic guitar, traditional stick drums to the lilting tones of kalimba. The songs range from township jive to haunting traditionally inspired melodies. All songs composed by South African born Valanga, tell stories of the past and present, a journey reminding us of our shared humanity.
