Twenty years ago, the Buskaid Project was started in Diepkloof, Soweto.
At the time, 15 children from the community formed part of the project's string ensemble, which received international standard string tuition.
Over the years, the Buskaid Project has grown to give expert tuition to at least 125 youths in Diepkloof.
The Buskaid Soweto String Ensemble is now an internationally recognised and an award-winning group.
Lesego Mokonto has been with the ensemble since it started 20 years ago and spoke to Stephen Grootes about the journey.
It is a lot of fun, coming together and playing music from all genres is amazing. Over the years we have grown up to be a big family.— Lesego Mokonto, member of the Buskaid Soweto String Ensemble
To celebrate, the group will be hosting a 'surprise' concert around the theme of movies.
It is happening next week Friday, 24 November at the Linder Auditoriam.— Lesego Mokonto, member of the Buskaid Soweto String Ensemble
