Neo Muyanga is a Soweto-born composer and musician living in Cape Town. He co-founded Pan African Space Station with Ntone Edjabe in 2008 (or was it in Yeoville in the 1990s?).
June 2014 saw the debut of his opera, The Struggle is My Life, based on an episode in the life of Nelson Mandela and commissioned by Opera Africa.
In the (Chronic) listening room, Bra Neo asks: “Does Mapfumo’s Chimurenga music – struggle music – still have any meaning today?”
