The Buskaid school for strings in Diepkloopf, Soweto, is a beacon for hope in the new South Africa.  Over 100 kids from age 5 to 18 pick up violas, violins, cellos and bass to produce both Mozart and local kwelas.  The learn the value of hardwork and teamwork and find joy in making the most beautiful music.

James Sparshatt’s photographs of music and dance capture the emotion and intensity of people lost in the rhythm of the moment.

The work is available as silver gelatin and palladium platinum prints.
