January 30, 2019 | 10:00 am
This is part of our Performances for Young People Series, Contact Miranda.Wilson @ uga.edu for information, reservations, and tickets.
The jubilant and stirring voices of “South Africa’s cultural ambassadors” (Nelson Mandela) combine the complex rhythms and harmonies of Zulu tradition with the sounds and sentiments of gospel music. Beautiful a cappella harmonies–made famous on Paul Simon’s Graceland album–showcase this four-time Grammy Award-winning ensemble’s message of hope, peace, and harmony in an unforgettable performance of powerful song.
