Umoja - Spirit of Togetherness ... Todd Twala

UMOJA is a collection and celebration of all the music and dance of South Africa over the years.  " They dance like demons and sing like angels". We chatted to the show’s creator Todd Twala about the production, her early experiences that led to its birth, their recent visit to the White house (see pic below) and New Orleans where she received the Key of the City. The magic of Umoja...

The show is authentic and based on own experiences ... done by South Africans rejoicing the rich heritage of our country.... a glorious celebration of South African culture and the wonderful people who make it.

Todd Twala starts 2

Todd will be working in collaboration with iStart2 in our quest to search for music and dance talent across the nation. We are looking for ordinary young people with raw talent who can be trained by experts in the industry. Be one of the seven ... log on to our new website at the end of September and join our journey.

I left the studio with a feeling of tremendous joy and happiness ... iStart2 has connected to a woman with an enormous heart and incredible warmth .... a woman who lives the Soul of South Africa and the Spirit of Togetherness.
