Our June cover star Leleti Khumalo toured the world with the cast of Sarafina! when it was still a musical, before it was adapted into a film in 1992. Before they knew it, people from all over the world were familiar with not only the songs in the film such as Freedom is Coming Tomorrow, but also the role the youth of 1976 played in the struggle for freedom.
We’re taking you on a walk down memory lane today with a video of the cast of Sarafina! performing at the TONY Awards in 1998.
In the June issue of BONA, Sarafina herself (Leleti Khumalo) talks to us about what it was like to portray this iconic character and we also chat to other cast members about their memories of this important part of our history. PLUS we take a photographic walk down memory lane of some of the most memorable moments in the play and film. Make sure you get yourself a copy now!
