Every now and then a group comes along with the rare ability to transcend cultural boundaries and connect diverse audiences through the power of music. The Soweto Gospel Choir is such a troupe. This glorious 25-member choir sold out the Concert Hall three years ago and returns again to perform its inspirational blend of tribal, traditional, and popular African gospel music in eight different languages. Earthy rhythms, rich harmonies, and charismatic a cappella delivery combine to uplift the soul and give voice to South Africa's hopes for a bright future.
