Here’s a painting by Lucas Mahome, South African artist who celebrates the life of the people and townships where he lives. His paintings are full of music and dance; this scene is from the Alexandra township (Johannesburg). We featured another of his paintings, "Apostic Baptism", in the article Apostolic Baptism in South Africa through the Eyes of a Local Artist Also below, a video-image from Alexandra township, and a SoundCloud channel of South African Jazz.
