The original African super choir, the South African Gospel Singers, directed by Pinise Saul, maintains its position as the greatest gospel choir of them all. Formed in 1979 to fight apartheid, the choir remains its original spirits of creating uplifting music that lifts your soul. The choir continues to draw on Xhosa, Zulu and Suthu vocal traditions while embracing township and traditional harmonies, gospel, jazz and soul to create something that is beautiful and moving in the grand style of the very best South African music. 

The singers’ close harmonies combined with their skin-tight band, led by guitarist Lucky Ranku create a performance that is both soulful and joyous.  The choir’s awesome vocal power and bursting exuberance creates music that lifts your spirit and soothes your soul. 

This event will begin at 8pm but our Picturehouse Cafe Bar will be open from 5.30pm for delicious food and drink. Special Offer! Book your meal in advance and get free ‘lucky dip’ tickets for a future concert – click here now for details
