The South African National Youth Orchestra paid tribute to this great man by performing the South African National Anthem outside his residence in Johannesburg. The crowd joined in singing in full voice and in true South African style encouraged and cheered for more. The musicians responded by launching into improvisation of Sophiatown tunes, such as Miriam Makeba’s Pata-pata; Kwela – kwela and Thoko by the Mahotella Queens. We mourn the loss of our Madiba. May he rest in peace.
