Vukani Mawethu Choir: South African Harmonies

SEE EVENT DETAILS
June 22, 2013; 2:00 p.m.

Free Performance in the BAM/PFA Sculpture Garden
Presented by the Berkeley World Music Festival

Enjoy an afternoon performance in the sculpture garden by Vukani Mawethu Choir, an Oakland-based group known for spirituals and freedom songs sung in Zulu, Xhosa, Sethu, and English. Intoxicating alto and tenor harmonies meld into deep bass and lyrical sopranos in Vukani Mawethu’s heartfelt repertoire of melodies that grew out of a centuries-long struggle for emancipation.

Since the choir was first formed by the late South African activist James Madhlope Phillips, Vukani Mawethu has devoted its music to charitable fundraising and linking people in the U.S. and abroad. The choir has performed at Zellerbach Auditorium, as part of Nelson Mandela’s 1990 World Tour at the Oakland Coliseum, and throughout the cities and townships of South Africa.
