AFRICAN NOTES A WINNER
Aticle: Whitehorse Leeder 4/5/2015
STUDENTS at Box Hill Senior Secondary College have had a taste of the spellbinding music of South Africa, thanks to internationally renowned musician Valanga Khoza.
Khoza visited the school for a series of performances and workshops that captivated the students.
School performing arts coordinator Perter Ryan said his students sang Khoza's songs and played their own instruments as well as Khoza's drums.
“The students were spellbound by his stories of an amazing life and the joyful music-making workshops,” Mr Ryan said.
With the charisma and wit of a trully great storyteller, Khoza shared some of his experiences from growing up in a South African Village to becoming a sought-after musician. “The atmosphere was charged with Valanga’s energy,” Mr Ryan said.
