ODYSSEY OF A SOUTH AFRICAN OPERA SINGER
By Musa Ngqungwana
It is a difficult undertaking for any human to escape the cycle of poverty, but to do so from one of the world’s most complex political systems, with a brutal history of segregation and deprivation, is nothing short of a miracle. Not only did Musa Ngqungwana manage to extricate himself from his impoverished past, but he found his way to the great opera houses of the world, attaining immense success in an affluent art form that bears no resemblance to his upbringing or culture. Odyssey of an African Opera Singer is a captivating story of Musa’s journey from SA’s townships to the world’s stages.
