African Music/Dance Galleries

What an exhilarating feeling, that just the name alone Soweto Gospel Choir, had on me the day I found out that they would be in Vienna. It was something special knowing that this great vocal group would be coming to lift the spirits of many in Vienna, while on their European Tour.

Melodies from Africa, Roots Music from Southern Africa presented Vienna with an ensemble of Zimbabwean and Austrian, Slovakian, and Madagascan artist at this years event. The sweet voices of acapella female group Nobuntu, BraZaMa featuring Chornisen Choir, Jeys Marabini and Insingizi.

Diesen Donnerstag fand in der Sargfabrik die CD Präsentation von Véro La Reine aus Kamerun statt. Neben Reggaemusik ist die tradionelle afrikanische Musik eines meiner Lieblingsstile und da mir die Musik von Véro La Reine nicht bekannt ist, war die Messlatte an Véro La Reine von meiner Seite sehr hoch. Können Ihre Kompositionen mich bezaubern? Kann ihre Stimme mich fesseln? Kann ihre Showeinlagen mich mitreißen?

The season is changing, soon the leaves will be falling to the ground, but there is nothing more warming than listening to live African music to uplift your soul.  Zimbabwean originated Insingizi and Iyasa together performed on Saturday evening at the Dschungel.

A splurge of colour filled the streets of Vienna with a parade from the Nigerian Embassy to the Welt Museum Vienna. Even though I did not have the advantage of seeing what had taken place first hand, by what I have heard from those who had participated is that it was so much fun.

Our final day at Kasumama and I must admit that my expectations were far exceeded by what the festival had to offer. What a wonderful event, meeting ground for networking with business people, artist, performers, craftsmen and woman and the diverse amounts of people who had come ...

They say shake what your mama gave you and this is what was happening at Kasumama on the 5.07.2013. The festivities went on as usual but as soon as the sun was about to set, the place came to life with performances by Hot Water (South Africa) and Ghettoman and the Believers.
