Odyssey of a South African Opera Singer
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 – some might say elitist – art form that bears no resemblance to his upbringing or culture. Odyssey of an African Opera Singer chronicles Musa’s journey from the townships of South Africa to the world’s stages. It is a captivating story that will inspire anyone who has ever had a dream.
