Choir Invisible is presenting two concerts on July 18 and 19 as official events for Nelson Mandela Day, which takes place on his birthday.
These are the UK’s only contributing events. The Grantham choir will sing South African songs for and about Nelson Mandela, led by Luyanda Jezile in the traditional call-and-response style and in all the South African languages. The 75 Invisibles deliver the a capella harmonies of Southern Africa alongside African-American Gospel and soul music, all sung in the richly-textured harmony that is their trademark sound.
Make a Joyful Noise: Intsholo Yovuyo - is the result of three months’ collaboration with leading South African singer Luyanda Jezile.
The concerts take place at The Engine Shed, Lincoln, on July 18 and at The Albert Hall, Nottingham, on July 19. Doors open 7pm for 8pm start. All tickets are £12 in advance, £14 on the door.
