Armed with her traditional Xhosa uhadi, acclaimed musician Indwe embarks on a musical pilgrimage through South Africa’s past and the events that led to the 1956 Women’s March to Pretoria.

This saw 1000s of women from Port Elizabeth boarding trains, determined to take part in an historical landmark in the struggle against the apartheid regime.

Indwe tracks down some women to collect and record their personal accounts and the songs they sang on that momentous day. Her voice melds with theirs as she interprets their stories through her music.

It’s a highly evocative musical meeting of past and present.
