South African Musician, songwriter and producer, Jonas Gwangwa dies at the age of 83.
The giant revolutionary cultural movement and democratic creative music artist was called to rest today; the trombone that boomed with boldness and bravery, and equally warmed our hearts with mellow melody has lost its life force.
In 1989 South African jazz composer and trombonist Jonas Gwangwa used the opportunity of an internationally televised interview,1 on the occasion of the Grammy awards in the United States, to declare on behalf of the leadership of a then exiled African National Congres
‘I serve the people of South Africa under the leadership of the African National Congress. These nominations and awards are also recognition of our people’s struggles and liberation’ (Sowetan 12-08-92).
Gwangwa had received a nomination for a Grammy for the song ‘Cry Freedom’ in the category ‘Best Song Written Specifically for a Motion Picture’, and two nominations for an Oscar (USA): one for ‘Best Music, Original Score’, and one for ‘Best Music, Original Song’.
He received further nominations for the category ‘Best Film Score’ in Golden Globes (USA), BAFTA (UK), Ivor Novello (UK), and Anthony Askwith Award (UK), and an ‘Award of Recognition’ from Friends of the Black Emmys (USA)
