Soweto Gospel Choir

HOPE—It’s Been a Long Time Coming

Brimming with energy and thrilling with their transcendent harmonies, the three-time Grammy-winning Soweto Gospel Choir is “nothing less than an international treasure” (Jazztimes), beloved the world over for its ensemble flair and infectious spirit. The singers return to Berkeley with a timely program honoring artists who have struggled for civil rights and social justice in the US and South Africa. Rousing freedom songs mix with music by Aretha Franklin, Harry Belafonte, Mahalia Jackson, and others, combined with traditional African gospel music and spirituals sung in a variety of languages. Be prepared to be uplifted—and brought to your feet—by 17 powerful voices and a driving percussion section!
