For the 10th birthday of NewMusicSA, the Bow project will go on a national tour — with Mantombi Matotiyana and a young ensemble from Denmark, the Nightingale String Quartet. The tour is sponsored by Distell and kicks off on 19 July at the Nederburg Estate in Stellenbosch. Thereafter the programme will visit five universities — Unisa, Wits, UKZN, UFS and Rhodes — and the performers and composers will present workshops in Soweto and in Lady Frere, the late Nofinishi Dywili's village in the Eastern Cape and the original source of the uhadi bow songs. At the end of the tour the performers will record the programme for CD release on the commercial label TUTL, based in the Faroe Islands. It should be available in South Africa by early in 2010.
