Fred Onovwerosuoke: 'Legendary choral director passes: Adieu, Maestro Mganga'

[Boniface Mganga]

Fred Onovwerosuoke, Ph.D. of African Musical Arts, Inc. sends AfriClassical this news:

“On July 5, 2011, Africa lost one of its luminary choral directors, Boniface Mganga. He founded the internationally famed Muungano National Choir of Kenya in 1979 and since then championed the cause of fine choral music tradition across Africa. Mganga was a dear friend of the African Musical Arts organization, and indeed was singularly instrumental to forging our partnership programs with choral music groups in Kenya, particularly the Boys Choir of Kenya and the Muungano National Choir. Maestro Mganga was barely 56. Read news report from Kenya's leading paper, Daily Nation.
