Sounds of Africa | BICC
05/11/2022 at 7:30 PM to 10:00 PM| $35
Take a journey with the Blackstone-Ipswich Cambrian Choir as we explore Sounds of Africa, featuring David Fanshawe’s groundbreaking choral work African Sanctus.
This internationally-acclaimed work is at once celebratory and visionary, expressing unity between peoples, their faiths and above all, their music. Juxtaposing tribal and western traditions, African Sanctus is an unorthodox setting of the Latin Mass over (and amongst) traditional African music recorded by the composer on his now legendary journeys (1969-73) up the River Nile, the Sudan, Uganda and Kenya.
Complementing Fanshawe’s work, we will also turn our gaze to the south, with a selection of traditional South African songs in stunning choral arrangements.
Its evocative music paired with engaging visuals promise to make this concert a true musical odyssey.
