“Perhaps outside of Fela’s Egypt 80, very few music bands have managed to influence their countries in the manner and to the extent that Sankomota did. Their emergence, explosive musical repertoire and long-lasting musical effect could neither be predicted nor expected. The effect of their music on the conscience of mortals and politicians alike, can still be felt even today.” – Phehello Mofokeng on Lesotho’s greatest band, Sankomota.
Please join us for the launch of Mofokeng’s beautiful, loving essay on the band’s self-titled debut.
At Keleketla! Library, Sat 2 March from 6pm.
