Part of Snape Proms

A welcome return to Snape Proms for one of the world’s greatest and most distinctive groups. The legendary a cappella male choir has been powerfully invoking the soul of South Africa for over 40 years. Torchbearers for their tradition, they pass their music on through the generations – their Grammy-nominated 2016 album Walking in the Footsteps of our Fathers honours their past as well as their future. But what remains is their infectious freewheeling spirit, and that unmistakable sound – warm, rich and flexible. Above all it is joy, pride and passion that radiate from every bar.
