SA Mourns the death of Ray Phiri

Our world is a little less bright today. South Africa mourns the death of a star: Ray Phiri. We as the National Arts Council send our deepest condolences to his family and friends.

Ray Phiri was more than a great musician who shaped much of our contemporary musical heritage, he was also a committed creative citizen who formed part of the NAC’s inaugural board. He served 3 terms between 1998 and 2011. His contributions will nourish our journey into the future he helped to envision. May his soul Rest In Peace.

Further communications regarding the memorial service and funeral arrangements will be shared.
