MIAGI Be the Legacy tour

7 December 2018

The MIAGI (Music is a Great Investment) orchestra gave an inspired performance at the ZK Matthews Hall at UNISA on 30 November 2018. The talented musicians were celebrating their Nelson Mandela 'Be the legacy'-European Tour. The orchestra was conducted by Daniel Spaw and Tshepo Tsotetsi.

The a capella group, Just 6, known as the "band with no instruments", gave a jaw dropping performance. The band who create the sound of instruments with only their voices were part of the finalists at SA's Got Talent in 2017.

Tshepo Tsotetsi, a band leader, saxophonist, clarinettist, arranger and composer, enthralled the audience while conducting the orchestra in a few of his own compositions including, "Flowers and Rainbows" and "Quiet Night".

On their European Tour MIAGI filled auditoriums in the cities of Europe where they were appreciated for the music they created.

"Great music, great artists, great spirit of the Rainbow Nation!" said Dr Martin Schäfer, Ambassador of Germany to South Africa.


MIAGI was established in 2001 by Robert Brooks as a not-for-profit organisation aimed at empowering young musicians. In the last 18 years MIAGI has hosted many international, intercultural festivals and collaborated with many renowned artists and ensembles. It has also facilitated various international opportunities and tours for young South African musicians.

The event at UNISA was hosted in collaboration with the Embassy of Germany in South Africa.
