A unique exhibition in the Brunei Gallery, SOAS entitled 'Stolen Moments–Namibian Music History Untold', which chronicles the intimate stories, songs and experiences of those who shaped Namibian popular culture during some of the most repressive years of Apartheid rule.

Curated by Namibian scholar, Aino Mongo, in association with an international group of artists, filmmakers and photographers, the exhibition showcases an extensive photographic collection, a 120-min video projection that revisits the dance styles of the 1950s-80s, 14-listening stations featuring Namibia’s music legends, a sound installation that explores a selection of over 100-hours of interviews with musicians and contemporary witnesses and a large collection of record covers and music memorabilia which profile Namibia’s much under-represented musical subcultures.
