Music by Prudence 33 min.
Prudence Mabhena lives in Zimbabwe, and for a long time almost no one knew about her hauntingly beautiful voice. No one knew the strong, resilient woman who owned it. They were unable to overlook her body; she was born with a debilitating condition called arthrogryposis. Music by Prudence traces the path of this little girl, and her remarkable transcendence from a world of hatred and superstition into one of music, love and possibility (2009).
