This performance troupe was founded by musician/actor Nkoto Malebye of mudaland funk group Kwani Experience and Soweto Story fame. They actors are named Bana Ba Bongi after Nkoto's late mother who was both a community builder and educator. The picture was shot backstage at The Playhouse in Durban during their inaugural performance there. For most of these children it was a culture shock which Nkoto believes will build them into confident individuals in the future who will find the world to be a huge stage for all their energies to unleash.
