SOA has landed safely in Durban South Africa!
After shaking jet lag out of our heads, we had a great first day of rehearsal at King Zwelithini Stadium in Umlazi, Durban. It was truly amazing to see the Exploration! set go up on a beautiful soccer pitch in South Africa.
Rehearsal went from 7am to 7pm, and included a visit from the Ekhaya Multi Arts Centre staff that will be mentoring the new KwaMashu community band that SOA is helping train this week.
Everyone is extremely excited for tomorrow! The afternoon is the first workshop with the Ekhaya students, and the evening is the Africa Premiere of Celebrate Durban!
