In 2004, the annual New Music Indaba (a contemporary music festival) was held in Grahamstown. As a prelude to the festival, a conference was held, dealing with the musics (plural) of apartheid - and specifically, how apartheid was constituted through music. Thirteen of the papers that were delivered were subsequently published in Composing apartheid, under the editorship of Grant Olwage, a senior lecturer in the Wits School of Arts at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg.
