Battle Of The Bands Winners: Choir Invisible, The Desmond & Leah Tutu Peace Choir
Congratulations to Choir Invisible, The Desmond & Leah Tutu Peace Choir who have won our latest Battle Of The Bands competition.
The response to their entry 'Sithi Shwele' was overwhelming, with hundreds of positive comments and ratings flooding in. The song is a traditional Zulu church song, from the singing of the Agape Children's Choir, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.
Choir Invisible will now have a song on the forthcoming World Music Network album, The Rough Guide To Undiscovered World.
Choir Invisible - the Desmond & Leah Tutu Peace Choir, supports the Archbishop's work for peace around the world, raising funds and performing their unique repertoire: songs of hope created to bring people together in the African spirit of 'Ubuntu', recognising our common humanity.
THIS IS NOT A CHOIR! - this is 75 men and women delivering totally uplifting vocal magic! But the "Invisibles" don't go in for smoke and mirrors - this is pure, unadulterated, free-range, locally-sourced, naked a capella!
Expect to hear the heart songs of Southern Africa alongside classic, blues-inflected African-American Gospel and sweet soul music, all sung with big, fat harmonies that are richer, smoother and more addictive than chocolate.
These HUGELY talented singers will grab hold of your heart, give you goosebumps and ignite your imagination! This is life-enhancing stuff with a depth of meaning and height of emotion that connects with people at the profoundest levels, providing balm for a troubled soul, a rallying cry for the embattled and deep joy for the hungry music-lover! It will make you want to dance and weep and laugh – often all at the same time.
9 July: Victoria Hall, Oakham
16 July: Barnbygate Methodist Church, Newark
