About this product
- DescriptionDhava Aiengar is a young pianist with brilliant prospects, but he has one problem: he is an Indian in apartheid South Africa. He is t allowed to travel and work where he likes and or love whom he likes, and he spends most of his time dodging the police, Zulu rioters, Indian gangs and white thugs. Driven by a passion for music, Dhava, along with his friends, Claude Tshikalange and Micah Bernhardt, defies everything apartheid stands for. They live life to the full, achieving acclaim and adoration from the townships to the most exclusive whites-only clubs...until the sinister machinery of apartheid starts to turn against them.Written by one of music's most promising stars, Shadow People provides a unique and authentic portrait of Durban, Cape Town's District Six and Johannesburg's Sophiatown exactly fifty years ago.
