The JSO gives young soloists an opportunity to make their debut with a big orchestra. They play a movement from a concerto, composed for a soloist with accompaniment by an orchestra. This festival is unique in that soloists are between 6 and 14 years old. The standard of playing is astonishing.
A music video for South African artist Spoek Mathambo, a cover of the Joy Division classic “She’s Lost Control”, directed and shot by Pieter Hugo and Michael Cleary. [Control] explores the world of township cults, street preaches and teen gangs and was shot on location in a squatted train boarding house in Langa, Cape Town. The cast is mainly made up of the neighborhood kids who run their own dance troop, Happy Feet. [h/t: @Colossal]
