Composed of the best artists in South Africa, the Soweto Gospel Choir is the absolute example of what the incomparable and inspiring power of African gospel music expresses: their music and their performances have been appreciated over the years by many world music stars who have called them several times to collaborate with them: from Aretha Franklin at U2, passing through Stevie Wonder, Robert Plant, Celine Dion, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Ben Harper and many others.

“Members of the Soweto Gospel Choir they are thrilled to be returning to Europe after so many years of absence“said the manufacturer Andrew Kay. “The group continues to inspire fans around the world and the reaction from audiences in Europe has always been unforgettable. We hope that our uplifting message of hope, faith and joy will reach several generations as we continue to celebrate the legacy of the great Nelson Mandela. “

This striking vocal ensemble, which performs in six of eleven South African languages, will present a program that combines tribal, traditional, African and Western gospel, and in an alternation of deep rhythms and rich harmonies, through the power of a cappella singing, will express the great hopes of South Africa and the deepest feelings of a people who fought for their freedom. For the first half of this concert, the choir will perform “Songs of the Free”, an overwhelming program celebrating Nelson Mandela, followed by international gospel classics, including their stunning reinterpretation of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”. The charismatic performances and the rousing and lively rhythms typical of African tribal music, contaminated by the gospel sound, will involve people thanks to an exciting and joyful concert that ranges from the traditional to the more contemporary repertoire: these wonderful artists with colorful clothes, will sing beyond to the hymns also some of their most famous interpretations such as “Amazing Grace” and “Freedom Songs Medley.” It is certain that during the concerts of the Soweto Gospel Choir it will be difficult to remain seated in your seat.
