This is artist Barend de
Wet and me (right) in 1982, attending the ANC’S Culture and Resistance Conference held in Gaborone. I was so excited to hear Hugh Masekela, Jonas Gwangwa and Abdullah Ibrahim playing live. I remember Jonas performing a powerful, sonorous instrumental version of Nkosi Sikelel’ iafrika on slide trombone. Barend was killed in a car accident last year. I really miss him.
