Summary This paper begins to explore the notion of a South African identity in Australia through community music making. Solbu (cited in Herbst, Nzewi and Agawu, 2003) highlights the strong link between music and society, arguing that, music creates and confirms identity, and challenges cultural and communal borderlines. This paper situates itself in an Australian society that is becoming increasingly globalised and cosmopolitan. The South African Jabulani choir in Melbourne is just one example that illustrates a context of diversity as one that promotes respect for a multicultural society and one that promotes respect for diversity across the community. This paper focuses on the cultural and musical identity of South Africans as a minority group in Australia and offers some perspectives on South Africans in Australia, music and cultural diffusion, identity, and the notion of making music together by people in a community music setting.
