For its appearance at the 2004 edition of the Ruvo Festival, Canto General founder and festival director Pino Minafra invited Tippett, Tippetts and Moholo-Moholo to guest with the orchestra and the Faraualla singers. With a repertoire drawn from Mongezi Feza, Dudu Pukwana, Harry Miller and some Keith Tippett originals, the musicians paid tribute to those who had sought to bring forth light and sound through jazz from beneath the desperate dark shadow of apartheid.
