On a rooftop with an astounding view of the informal settlement and its surroundings, the troupe broke into a spontaneous cypher with locals showcasing their skills too.

Returning to the centre, the group was treated to a break-dance dance performance by the Maono Titans. The visit ended with a tour of the centre’s recording studio.
