Mthetho Maphoyi in NYC

This Tuesday, Mthetho will arrive in New York City for the first time in order to present at the 2012 TedxTeen Conference.  He’ll be giving a talk on his life as a self-taught opera singer in the townships outside of Hermanus, Stellenbosch and Cape Town, South Africa.  He’ll be speaking between noon and 1:00 US Eastern Daylight Time (here is the schedule: my best guess is that he will speak at 12:30).

The talk is fully booked already, but you can watch online at http://tedxteen.com/

Here’s a sneak preview of the video clip he’ll include in his talk:

(For clarity, Mthetho Mapoyi’s passport reads “Mteto Maphoyi,” the spelling adopted by TedxTeen.  Oh, translating from isiXhosa…)
