Description

The Choral Music Tour takes small groups into the homes of passionate choir duos and trios in Cape Town. The first part of the evening features an intimate musical revue over a dinner of local cuisine, while the second part involves a trip to a choir group’s home where the concert is enjoyed along with a cheeky nightcap. Expect to experience the sounds of local groups including Treasured Voices, a blind gospel trio from Mfuleni, the Guguletu Gospel Stars from Guguletu, and the Beystars Cape Malay Choir from Mitchells Plain.

History

The Choral Music Tour introduces the choral tradition of South Africa, made world famous by groups such as the Soweto Gospel Choir. The 30-member ensemble blends elements of African gospel, reggae and American pop music. Other local favourites of the choral genre include Ladysmith Black Mambazo, which remains one of the world’s most popular choral groups to date, and talents like Hugh Masekela and Abdullah Ibrahim, who continue to inspire the world with their music.

Advice for visitors

The tour is suited for small groups, with a maximum of 12 people. At four hours long, it’s a full evening out, with dinner lasting about 90-minutes, and second part of the tour including a 90-minute show and nightcap. All dietary needs can be catered for. Guests are encouraged to let the guide know ahead of time if there are any specific requirements, such as vegetarian, vegan, gluten intolerance or other allergies.

Did you know

South African music has been influenced by the slave trade, missionaries, old African instruments and European sensibilities. In an attempt to protest apartheid, many black South African musicians began creating music in their native languages. Kwaito, a variant of house music featuring the use of African sounds and samples, remains one of the country’s most popular forms of music from this style.
