Themba »Hope« lives happily with his grandmother in a small traditional village on the banks of the Umfolozi. The people in the village love him.

With »Umfana Uyahamba«, Thabang Mokoena, composer and choirmaster from the Ratanda township, takes you on a musical journey into the emotional world of South Africa, a world characterised by great contrasts.

The members of the Lesedi Show Choir bring parts of their own story to the stage.
