The Mzansi Ensemble performed a tribute to OR Tambo at the Barbican Theatre in London 2007 and have performed in SA's prestigious theatres: the SA State Theatre for the 2010 World Cup, the Mandela Theatre, Market Theatre, Durban Playhouse and Opera House, and at the former President Thabo Mbeki's birthday celebration in June 2016. In August 2018 the Ensemble, which is the biggest in SA, is back in the UK for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, performing the Mandela Centenary Celebration – a proudly South African music extravaganza of traditional African sounds, African jazz and Township big band.
