"We must not only speak about forgiveness and reconciliation, we must act on these principles."
- Archbishop Desmond Tutu
Rainbow Nation from our new album Symphonic Soweto is a melody for unity... We composed it to inspire people to come together - and today, South Africa celebrates Reconciliation Day. We remember the past but we also look forward to the future, building a new nation together as one.
"We've known all times, times of sorrow
We've known all times, times of pain"

What an incredible day it is today. The Day of Reconciliation.
23 years have passed since our beloved country become a democracy.
The miracle of the rainbow nation that became a reality.
How far we have come. How far we still have to go.
Here’s to our future. To all of our cultural diversity that makes us truly unique. To all of our beautiful people.
In the words of our founding father Nelson Mandela remember this. “As long as many of our people still live in utter poverty, as long as children still live under plastic covers, as long as many of our people are still without jobs, no South African should rest and wallow in the joy of freedom.” 🇿🇦🇿🇦🇿🇦
Reconciliation Day here in South Africa and there’s a lot going on in our political landscape right now. Despite differing opinions, let’s pray the outcomes of decisions will be what’s best for our country, it’s economy and ALL it’s people - never forgetting the poor and disadvantaged.
Happy Reconciliation Day South Africa! This day was first celebrated as a public holiday in 1995, with the intent of fostering reconciliation and national unity for our great land. Today and every day, let us all join hands and make SA a better country 🇿🇦✋🏿🇿🇦✋🏾🇿🇦✋🏽#southafrica#greatnation#rainbownation#dayofreconciliation
The Day of Reconciliation is a public holiday in South Africa held annually on 16 December. The holiday came into effect in 1994 after the end of apartheid, with the intention of fostering reconciliation and national unity for the country. The date was chosen because it was significant to both Afrikaner and African cultures. The government chose a meaningful date for both ethnic groups because they recognized the need for racial harmony. The celebration of the Day of Reconciliation can take the form of remembering past history, recognizing veteran's contributions, marching and other festivities. #didyouknow#reconciliationday2017#proudlysouthafrican#rainbownation#unity
