Ndlovu Youth Choir LIVE on Expresso

From America's Got Talent to #ExpressoShow! Be inspired by the incredible talent of the Ndlovu Youth Choir.  

Watch the Ndlovu Youth Choir perform 'Higher Love':

America’s Got Talent 2019 finalists, The Ndlovu Youth Choir, joined us in studio ahead of their performance that afternoon at the South African Exhibition where Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Trevor Noah and Bill Gates played at the Cape Town Stadium for charity.

Since its inception in 2009, the Ndlovu Youth Choir has profoundly affected the lives of the choristers and demonstrates the potential of any human being to achieve excellence no matter their background, education or place of birth.  From its humble beginnings as an after-school activity the choir has evolved into a truly outstanding professional ensemble.

The Ndlovu Youth Choir is part of the Ndlovu Care Group’s globally acclaimed childcare community programme. The choir aims to ensure that a child from a disadvantaged community enjoys the same level of musical tuition, care and opportunities as a child from a more affluent society.

Choristers that have been part of the Ndlovu Youth Choir have said that the chance to be part of a world-class extramural developmental program offers them hope, not only for enhanced opportunities but as a diversion from the challenges that come from living in disadvantaged communities. The risk of alcohol, drugs, teenage pregnancy and other problems are practically eliminated because choral music requires such a time investment.

The Ndlovu Youth Choir sings songs in all 11 South African languages which include Zulu, Xhosa and English. The choir’s music incorporates traditional South African genres such as isicathamiya (is-cat-a-ME-Ya) a style popularized by Ladysmith Black Mambazo. 

Their repertoire also includes ancient tribal chants, inspirational gospel, contemporary Afro-Pop and Jazz by globally acclaimed South African artists such as Hugh Masakela and Miriam Makeba, as well as original songs describing African life with a call for African unity. 

The choir is vibrant, exuberant and colourful, and delivers a toe-tapping and energetic South African musical performance irresistibly combined with mesmerising choreography.
