Description

Poster for a South African cultural evening at Shoreditch Town Hall Assembly Hall.

Political oppression in South Africa during 1960s–1990s created challenges for people of colour and many musicians left South Africa for the UK and Europe where they felt they had more freedom to develop their art.

Events showcasing South African cultural and musical traditions took place in Hackney, including Zabalaza, which broadly means ‘struggle’ in the Zulu and Xhosa languages of the country.
