We are Viva Sonus. Latin for “a lively sound”, our group name symbolises our ambition. We want to use music for to bring joy, to fundraise, to heal.
Our team consists of five members:
Ubuko is a peer of ours who has lost both his legs and many fingers to meningococcal septicaemia. He has blade prosthetics for movement, but lacks a full set of fingers. Our goal is to raise money and offer our time to help obtain a robotic hand for him.
To do this, we have decided to play music in the form of a three-hour marathon. This would amount to a song list of approximately one-hundred pieces (each about three minutes). All of us in Viva Sonus have a passion and love for music, and we found this fitting as a fundraiser because not only do many instruments require heavy finger-work, music has long been used as a comparison and metaphor for healing, living and an expression of pure humane acts.
We would like to ask you to donate to our campaign, preferably per song. Just 50cents per song (amounting to R50) will help us reach (and hopefully surpass) our goal of R1000.
