Bala Brothers to Perform Live in Windhoek

AS part of its fundraising initiatives, Namibian Voices will bring the South African trio, the Bala Brothers, to perform live in Windhoek on Saturday, 5 July.

The multi-award winning trio are renowned for infusing classical opera sounds with those of popular African music, which saw the birth of Popera, a new generation of African inspired classical music.

With their song writing, producing, arranging and performing artist expertise, Zwai, Loyiso and Phelo Bala have managed to captivate a diverse group of music lovers through their unique sound.

All three brothers were schooled at the acclaimed Drakensberg Boys Choir, a highly esteemed school of music in South Africa.

They have taken their love of music and translated the story of their lives into an epic rags-to-riches prologue.

Their seductive harmonies have moved many an audience from tears to old school dance moves.

It is near impossible to watch these brothers in performance and stay in your seat. Their unique quality has created a global demand for them, having performed alongside the Grammy Award winning Soweto Gospel Choir and gracing stages at the Edinburgh Festival as well as concluding a 2011 Australian tour.

The show takes place at the Windhoek High School hall on Saturday at 19h00. Doors will open at 18h00 and tickets will be available for N$250 from Computicket.
