Soweto Gospel Choir

14:30, 02 - 26 Aug

The spectacular two-time Grammy Award-winning Soweto Gospel Choir returns to Edinburgh with a special concert, Songs of the Free, celebrating the 100th anniversary of the birth of Nelson Mandela, the Father of the rainbow nation. Hailing from the town of Soweto, the birthplace of South Africa’s democratic movement's struggle for freedom, Soweto Gospel Choir thrills audiences around the world with their stunning blend of African gospel, freedom songs and international classics. This is a special concert by the choir who performed for Nelson Mandela on many occasions during his life and at his state funeral.
