Using text, color, and charcoal line, Maqabuka creates a striking background from which the portrait of musical legend, Max Roach is extracted. In this nostalgic portrait of the American jazz drummer and composer, Ludumo combines modern techniques to bring homage. Jazz is still very popular in township communities and Roach, the pioneer of bebop, is heralded as one of the most important musicians in modern history. By creating this portrait Ludumo eternalizes and brings home to the continent of Africa one of its own.
