CAL PERFORMANCES IN OAKLAND
Soweto Gospel Choir
Songs of the Free

Worldwide ambassadors of South African culture, the Soweto Gospel Choir routinely brings audiences to their feet—clapping, stomping, singing, and being transported by the choir's exuberant performances. Clad in their famously vibrant robes, and swaying with deft ensemble choreography, the two-time Grammy winners perform renditions of Zulu, Xhosa, and Sotho folk and gospel music, American spirituals, and African pop, in a dozen different languages. "Absolutely thrilling singers...dazzling music" (Billboard).
