Soweto Entsha, who wowed audiences last year, make their preview debut at the 2012 Festival of Spirituality and Peace.
"it's great to see the queues outside and feel the buzz of atmosphere building," FoSP director Katherine Newbigging told Spirituality & Peace News as show time approached.
Soweto Entasha are "a smart, slick a cappella four-piece who reached a global audience performing at the [South African] World Cup opening ceremony," wrote Fiona Shepherd in The Scotsman last year.
"They are distinct from the
other African music shows that have stormed [through] in recent years
in that they freely blend western pop elements of the male vocal harmony
tradition into their performance, making for a diverse set which draws
on the vibrancy of 1950s doo-wop, the all-singing, all-dancing
presentation of the 1960s soul groups and the more saccharine tendencies
of the modern R&B outfits as much as the soft, healing invocations
and exhilarating spirit of their own tribal cultures.
