Gospel truth

South Africa's Grammy award winning choir are on their way. Would you like to see them?

There is nothing quite like the sound of a large group of voices united in the harmony of South Africa, and since their sell-out debut at the Edinburgh Festival in 2003, Soweto Gospel Choir have won critical acclaim and performed to full houses around the world.

The stars cannot get enough of them either, and not only were they guests of honour at the lovely Desmond Tutu's birthday party, but they have sung alongside Bono, Peter Gabriel and Jimmy Cliff and been heralded as the most exciting group to emerge in world music in recent years. This was confirmed when they picked up their 2006 Grammy Award for Best Traditional World Music Album (for their second album ‘Blessed’). As well being support act to the Red Hot Chili Peppers last summer.

Te SGC have also recently finished recording with Robert Plant in New Orleans for the Fats Domino tribute album.

Their sound is powerful and melodic, just right for the sterling acoustics of the Philharmonic Hall where they gather to wow Liverpool crowds on Sunday Feb 3 as part of a major UK tour promoting their Grammy nominated album African Spirit.
