We’re really looking forward to hearing Simply Soweto Encha and here is why
A sound sensation that uplifts and inspires I The Scotsman
Simply Soweto Encha, formerly known as Africa Entsha, are a five-piece a cappella group that sing gospel, soul, jazz, doo-wop, and R’n’B both in African and popular styles. In their shows, Simply Soweto Encha celebrate South African oral and dance traditions by performing Zulu, Xhosa, Tswana and Swahili songs, full of rhythm and harmonies.
Dumi, Jabu, Morgan, Lwazi, and Sbu all come from the Soweto township where they have developed their talents being inspired by rich local culture. Discovered in Johannesburg, the group have toured across Europe to share their unique music style since 2008. Their shows have generated great reviews and standing ovations.
Described as ‘very creative in combining the physical with the music,’ ‘non-stop joyous irrepressible harmonies and rhythms,’ their performances have been awarded with numerous titles, incl. Spirit of Edinburgh & Buxton Fringe, Brighton Fringe Best Performance, Trigon Jazz Festival Best Vocal Group, Ethno Jazz Festival Best Performers.
