Nelson Mandela


An Unfinished Symphony

“I honestly believe that music can bring people together. Music is a universal language”

In this film you get to follow the two South African musicians; Tsepo Pooe, who grew up in Soweto Township; and Lize Schaap, who grew up in wealthy Pretoria. They are both part of a very special and unique orchestra, the Miagi Orchestra. Inspired by the legacy of Nobel Peace Laureate Nelson Mandela, the orchestra aims to help the nation overcome decades of violence, conflict and division through the power of music.
