Press Release – For Immediate Release

Johannesburg, 10th January 2017

In association with Concerts SA, outstanding Johannesburg-based percussionist Volley Nchabeleng is embarking on ‘Africa, My Home’ tour. This tour will see Volley head workshops at various schools in Gaborone during the second half of January, develop and rehearse new work with local artists, and perform at selected performance venues in the capital of Botswana.

On 27th January Volley will perform solo at Moving Space (Maru-A-Pula School), and on 2nd February he will perform at Mantlwaneng Theatre (Westwood international School) with local artists from Top Art Team, directed by Tefo Paya.

Volley says: “I am very excited for this tour and looking forward to share my love for percussion with school kids in Gaborone. This is priceless experience for me and overwhelming opportunity to invest into the coming generation. I want to thank concert SA for making this tour possible.”

Born in Limpopo, Volley Nchabeleng grew up in the village of Masemola (Thabampshe) and studied music at Sibikwa Arts Centre and at the University of South Africa (UNISA). Volley is one of most multi-talented and versatile international musicians in his right. He has toured internationally since 2004, performing in Africa, Europe and Asia.

Volley’s recent tours include India, Belgium, Holland, Germany and Austria. Currently Volley works as a freelance producer, musical creative director for theatre productions and teacher for traditional instruments, such as marimba, African drums and soft percussions. His latest production and DVD is called Revelation Project 2 Live at Springs Theatre, where he dishes out a different view of gospel music as a whole.

Volley Nchabeleng’s ‘Africa, My Home’ Tour is supported by Concerts SA through the Music Mobility Fund, a funding mechanism which offers opportunities for South African musicians to undertake live music tours.

Concerts SA is a joint South African/Norwegian initiative housed under the auspices of the Stakeholder Hub within the SAMRO Foundation; it receives financial, administrative and technical support from the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the SAMRO Foundation and Concerts Norway. Working with musicians, promoters, venue owners and audiences, the project aims to support live music in South Africa by finding and implementing ways to create a vibrant and viable live music circuit. It also aims to develop an interest in and appreciation of live music by showcasing music performances and conducting workshops at schools.
