AFRICA SOUL – back by popular demand

25 February @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Back by popular demand, AFRICA SOUL returns to Theatre on the Square. Book early to avoid missing out! AFRICA SOUL with Philisiwe Faya, Pamela Hlabangwana, Katlego Khasela, Warren Mahlangu, Freddie Molefe, Thabiso Molefe, Semangele Mongatane, Ipeleng Moshe, Lungisani Mhlongo, Onthatile Mjiako and Victoria Sithole

AFRICA SOUL is a first for South Africa. Their music is pure soul and blues, taking songs from the 1950’s/1960’s era of Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Otis Redding and other music icons and giving those ‘old’ classics a ‘young’ rebirth. Most importantly and uniquely, re-working those well-known classics with African harmonies and lyrics, and in such a way, bringing songs from a bygone era to today’s audience of both an older and younger generation, to either reminisce about, or to hear for the first time. Songs from the American South, to the African South.

This vocal group comprises current Soweto Gospel Choir members but is a separate entity with a different sound and feel. Musical direction & production falls under the multi-talented Adam Howard.

Beverly Bryer, co-founder, Producer & Director of Soweto Gospel Choir, has now added the role of Founder/ Producer/Director of Africa Soul.  Both Adam and Beverly have brought their 30 plus years of experience and music successes to this new and exciting project. Staging and choreography falls under the creative hands of Matt Counihan and Philly Liebenberg.

AFRICA SOUL is sophisticated, soulful and unique. They are new, different and exciting, for all age groups who want to experience beautiful music and exceptional voices – interpretations of an amazing musical era brought to life again in this new decade.
