Soweto Gospel Choir: Songs of the Free

Two-time Grammy award-winning Soweto Gospel Choir has performed to standing ovations and sold-out houses throughout the world, appearing on stages with superstars, including Aretha Franklin, Peter Gabriel, Céline Dion and Bono.

In Songs of the Free, this a cappella vocal ensemble from South Africa celebrates the centenary of the birth of Nelson Mandela. With rich vocal textures and driving rhythms, these charismatic performers celebrate the spirit of South Africa in an inspiring program of freedom songs and traditional and popular African and Western gospel.

“Absolutely thrilling singers... dazzling music.” (Billboard)
