President Mandela’s inspirational story is vividly illustrated in a composition that has woven South African songs with original music. The composer bases the work, in part, upon interviews with personnel of the Nelson Mandela Foundation in Johannesburg, South Africa, including Mandela’s official photographer, Alf Kumalo.
