The Buskaid music project has transformed the lives of young people in South Africa's most famous black township. Acclaimed British musician Rosemary Nalden started this remarkable program by chance. One morning at home in 1991, she heard a radio story about a struggling string ensemble in South Africa. In response, she and her colleagues busked at train stations across the UK, raising thousands of dollars. That became the seed for a grass roots music project and saw Rosemary travel from Britain to South Africa to ultimately establish Buskaid.
