Gaiam TV Documentary Explores The Role Of Music In Nelson Mandela's Remarkable Life

BOULDER, Colo., Dec. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Gaiam TV is honored to present a special film released in 2012 titled Music for Mandela written and directed by Canadian filmmaker Jason Bourque and produced by Ken Frith of Gold Star Productions. The one hour and 20 minute long film received five stars on Gaiam's review system, and features the musical works of a wide variety of artists who have been inspired by Nelson Mandela, who died on December 5 at the age of 95.

Nelson Mandela is quoted in the film saying, "Artists reach areas far beyond the reach of politicians. Art, especially entertainment and music, is understood by everybody, and it lifts the spirits and the morale of those who hear it."

Music for Mandela explores the role music played in the remarkable life of one of the world's most important icons. From Nelson Mandela singing at his own prison concert to the present day celebrations of his legacy, the music born out of his inspirational journey is commented on by his closest friends, former exiled musicians, current international artists and community volunteers who use music today to motivate and educate. The documentary also explores what music means to all South Africans and how it became a unifying force against apartheid.

Musical performances include Grammy award-winning group Ladysmith Black Mambazo and the internationally acclaimed Soweto Gospel Choir. Interviews include the legendary BB King, Estelle, Welsh opera star Katherine Jenkins and Mandela's grandson – hip hop artist Bambatha Mandela.
