From the heart of South Africa, the Soweto Gospel Choir is an awe-inspiring and powerful vocal ensemble with an inspirational mix of tribal, traditional and popular African and international gospel songs. Their earthy rhythms, rich harmonies, a cappella and charismatic performances combine to uplift the spirit.

Members hail from different backgrounds, hence the choir sings in a number of languages, ranging from English to Xhosa, Zulu and Sotho. Their beautiful costumes are inspired by different tribes in South Africa. They include a multitude of Zulu beadwork, the characteristic black stripes of Xhosa, prints that depict traditional Ndebele and Zulu designs and the brightly colored fabrics of the Shengaan tradition.
