Tyrone Appollis  "I consider political and social reconciliation to be an integral part of art. A cross-cultural dialogue, personal therapy and as communication to God. All my compositions are in one way or another, autobiographical. I portray an array of continuous movement, animating featureless townships with colorful shacks and folk on the streets dancing, vending, making music and occasionally fighting".
