short biography

Neo Muyanga (born in Soweto, South Africa) is a composer and artist. Muyanga’s practice seeks to foster and preserve love and appreciation, and to develop memories and knowledges that have been variously erased, obscured, or violently debarred by dominant global powers throughout history. Blending new opera, jazz improvisation, Zulu, and Sesotho idiomatic songs, Muyanga’s sonic interventions are nourished by their attention to communal storytelling, reciprocity, and interdependence.
