Khumba Update

September 2013


After 2 years of hard work by the crew, Khumba is finally done and ready for release

on Oct 25th! I spent 7 months on the score and am very pleased with the result.

We used Stellenbosch University Orchestra for recording the score,

and they most definitely shone! 


The movie was featured at Cannes, Annecy and Toronto film festivals to 

rave reviews!
