Mbongeni Ngema links up with Emtee, Saudi, Gigi Lamayne, Reason, Blaklez, Tamarsha & MJ Machaba for Freedom Is Coming Tomorrow (Remix)
In South Africa, June is Youth Month and June 16 is a significant holiday that commemorates the 1976 Soweto Uprising. The iconic musical, Sarafina, eloquently captures the essence of this and so does its soundtrack, Freedom Is Coming Tomorrow. This coming Friday the remix of this song will be released. It features Gigi Lamayne, Blaklez, Emtee, Reason Saudi, Tamarsha, Reason and MJ Machaba.
Reason took to Instagram to share his thoughts on the movie and what it taught him about history.
“No movie better paints the picture of #YouthDay76 like #Sarafina. I remember the sadness I felt from how well captured the pain of what lead to that day and the aftermath of it thereafter. How the music easily triggered my tears because of how well composed each emotion was in every song. It was all the education I needed to truly understand what this day meant to many generations to come,” Reason shares.
The remix is expected to recreate the original song and also capture the hope, optimism and aspirations of young people, 22 years later.
Freedom Is coming Tomorrow Remix is set to drop on Friday, 19 June. Looking forward to it?
