With three different incarnations of Mandela, music includes the traditional Xhosa choral, jazz and jive dancing of the 1950s township music halls, struggle songs of the 1980s and the liberation music of the 1990s.
Mandela was famously incarcerated for 27 years before finding freedom. He passed away December 5, 2013.
