Jazz Against Apartheid Buffalo City Homecoming - Steve Biko Centre - December 18th 2022

The Buffalo City Homecoming is the return of Jazz Against Apartheid and the legacy of musical prodigy Johnny Dyani to his roots in the Eastern Cape. It is a profound cross-fertilization and is developed on a foundation of 60 years of exile history and 36 years of friendships formed in the struggle. On the 18th of December the Jazz Against Apartheid Band of esteemed musicians from the Eastern Cape, Europe and Canada performed 13 of Dyani’s world-renowned compositions, including one of his most famous tunes, “Song for Biko” at the Steve Biko Centre on the date of what would have been Steve Biko's 76th Birthday.
