Music for Mandela explores the role music played in the extraordinary life of one of the world’s most important icons. From Nelson Mandela’s imprisonment to his release and the present day celebrations of his legacy, the music born out of his inspirational journey is commented on by his closest friends, former exiled musicians, current international artists, and community volunteers, who use music today to motivate and educate. Combining striking visuals with freedom songs, pop music and hip hop, the film is a stirring tribute to the man himself and to the ultimate power of music.

The opening film for our Educated Reel series explores the role that music played in the extraordinary life of one of the world's most important icons, Nelson Mandela. Pieter de Vos, '14 PhD, will share his experiences living in a post-apartheid South Africa. Music for the film was composed by U of A alumna, Amritha Vaz, '97 BA, '02 LLB.
