Description The Amandla Cultural Ensemble originated in the late 1970s, most of them from Umkhonto we Sizwe (MK) cadres based in Angola. Led by the trombonist Jonas Gwangwa, the Ensemble became an ambassador for the African National Congress (ANC) throughout Africa, South America, Europe and the Soviet Union. Their purpose was to encourage international communities to stop supporting apartheid cultural artists. It was successful in persuading the world's artists not to perform in South Africa and to stop other countries from allowing South African artists to perform in their countries. From left to right: Jonas Gwangwa (artistic director), Jabu Sithole and Denis Mpale.
