uMngeni Launch

uMngeni Tourism launch event
23 February 2022

When our marimba band was invited to play at the Nelson Mandela Capture Site as part of the launch of uMngeni Tourism and the “Midlands My Way” campaign, we were naturally honoured and very excited. The various municipality members had been inspired by their performance at the December “Light the Falls” event and wanted them back! The band played their hearts out and the crowd loved the energy and vibe the band created for the visitors. Subsequently, Estelle Sinkins from the Village Talk published an article in the newspaper about the event and used a beautiful photo of the band. A proud moment!

Some comments from the public:

“Always so good to have the marimba vibe. Quintessentially Midlands. No fabulous function should be without Music Voyage energy,” Nikki Brighton.

Our Mayor Chris Pappas said, “Awesome as usual, thank you!” 

Mr Gcumisa had this to say, “I have a great admiration for your work, you may not know this but it means a lot to be given an exposure especially for some of us coming from communities with so limited resources. I truly adore your work.”
