ED2012 Music Review: Soweto Entsha

ED2012 5/5 Reviews ED2012 Music Reviews

Over twelve hours have elapsed since this performance and I am still in awe of the beauty and magnificence of Soweto Entsha. An African a cappella group, these guys lift the audience with their high-energy performance of spiritual music, performed both in English and Zulu, paired with traditional African dance and even aspects of tap dance. With a genuine and contagious joy, the singers raise their angelic voices in perfect harmony, praising the world around them. A truly divine experience, set in the beautiful St John’s Episcopal Church, religious affiliates and atheists alike should not miss this outfit. A phenomenal show for all ages and denominations, this not only entertains but also inspires.

St John’s Church, 1-4, 18, 23, 25 Aug, 8.00pm, also 25 Aug at 10.00pm.
