    This is the first time that Cambridge has had the chance to learn South African Popular Songs. A message from Joyce: "Learning is by call and respond. There is no need for previous knowledge. The best way of making people feel at ease is by making them know that there is no need to read music. They will learn by call an response". The songs that were learned include: - Nelson Mandela: a song giving praise and appreciation to Nelson Mandela. - Thula Baba: a South African Lullaby. Joyce Moholoagae Since August 2006, South African lyric soprano, Joyce Moholoagae, has inspired thousands of singers in her role as workshop leader with Mbawulaaround the UK. Her instinctive knowledge of African culture and song was enhanced by study at the University of Natal where she gained a Diploma in music performance. Further study for a postgraduate diploma in opera at the Royal Academy of Music and the experience of several hundred Mbawula choral workshops has developed a set of skills enabling her to effortlessly move between the traditions of both African song and classical vocal production. A native speaker of several African languages, Joyce is able to interpret, inflect and translate meaning and articulation to choral singers from different backgrounds and cultures, regardless of experience and skill level. With Mbawula, she has inspired singers from the ages of 5 to 75 to sing confidently in Zulu, Sesotho, Xhosa and Setswana and has provided a focus, context and framework for this joyful and profound music. With a natural and welcoming style, Joyce Moholagae also has the necessary skills to draw young (and less young) people into the world of African dance and movement: this results in a spectacular explosion of song and dance on stage with Mbawula and illustrates the skills possessed by Joyce to inspire the head, heart and feet. Hear me Move is the first South African street dance film. Following the screening, we will host a Q&A with the film director. The evening closed with the live performance of Joyce Moholoagae. This event has been organised with the support of the BFI, Awarding funds from the National Lottery as part of the South African Season in the United Kingdom 2014 & 2015. The SA-UK Seasons is a partnership between the Department of Arts and Culture, South Africa and the British Council.

          CAFF 2014-SOUTH AFRICA AT 20: THE FREEDOM TOUR The 13th Cambridge African Film Festival hosted a film screening of ROADMAP TO APARTHEID followed by a Q&A with Dr Ruba Salih (SOAS, University of London) and David Africa (South African Analyst) Date: Sunday 2 November 2014 Directors: Ana Nogueira & Eron Davidson Country: South Africa-Israel-Palestine Duration: 95 mins Documentary film Venue: Arts Picturehouse As part of the South African Tour, CAFF seeks to shed light on what happened in South Africa during the apartheid period to further understand current conflicts worldwide. In ROADMAP TO APARTHEID, first-time directors Ana Nogueira and Eron Davidson take a close look at the apartheid analogy commonly used to describe the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Narrated by Alice Walker (author of The Colour Purple), the film traces the rise and fall of apartheid in South Africa, as it shows why many Palestinians feel they are living in an apartheid system today, and why an increasing number of people around the world agree with them. We were delighted to welcome David Africa and Dr Ruba Salih to host a Q&A following the screening. David was a liberation movement activist in 1980s South Africa, holding leadership positions in student and youth political organisations. He has commented on South African politics, international security and Israel's occupation in Al Jazeera Online, The Mail & Guardian and South Africa radio and television. Dr Ruba Salih is a Member of the Centre for Palestine Studies and Reader of Gender Studies in SOAS, University of London, with extensive academic work on Palestine. Cambridge African Film Festival, in collaboration with the four other African film festivals in the UK - Film Africa in London, Afrika Eye in Bristol, Watch-Africa in Wales, and Africa in Motion in Scotland - are organising a UK-wide tour to take the best of South African cinema to locations across the UK from Oct 2014 to Feb 2015, in celebration of 20 years of democracy and freedom. The tour is supported by the British Film Institute's Programming Development Fund, awarding funds from The National Lottery. The tour is organised as part of the South African Season in the United Kingdom 2014 & 2015. The SA-UK Seasons is a partnership between the Department of Arts and Culture, South Africa, and the British Council.
