Africa Entsha - smart and slick - sing tribal songs a cappella and a not to be missed version of Adele's Rolling in the Deep
An exciting opportunity to meet the director, Vuyani Nelson Mola, of Africa Entsha - a smart, slick a cappella five-piece - and then attend their performance. The group reached a global audience last year performing at the World Cup opening ceremony.
Africa Entsha are distinct from the other African shows that have stormed the Fringe 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.
The group finish with a cover of Adele's Rolling In The Deep which, like everything else in their set, is delivered with utter sincerity, a warm depth of tone and a whole lot of soul.
The singers are Morgan Njobo, Sbusiso Xulu, Jabulile Vuyani Nelson Mola, Dumisani Zenzele Mtetwa & Zulu Lwazi.
