The popular South African Soweto Gospel Choir will return to Finland in October on the Heart of Africa tour. The Grammy Award-winning choir will perform three times at the Savoy Theatre in October. During their last visit in 2018, Soweto Gospel Choir performed to full houses at the Savoy Theatre.

In these concerts, the 15-person choir will perform a colourful medley of South African gospel tradition: African songs, spiritual music and Western gospel and pop. The choir, originating from a suburb of Johannesburg, celebrates the memory of Nelson Mandela in its performances, and the repertoire includes anti-apartheid songs made during apartheid.

Soweto Gospel Choir is well known and loved, not only in the Christian context but more widely among music lovers. The choir, which has performed with U2, Celine Dion and John Legend among others, has been touring the world for years, for example, in the United States, Japan and Australia.

“The sound is intoxicating, and that is not all. They are absorbed by the music and dance to it.” (Vesa Sirén, HS 23/9/2018)

The duration of the concert is approx. 2 h, including intermission
