Africa Entsha is a smart, slick a cappella group that reached a global audience in 2010 performing at the World Cup opening ceremony.
The Africa Entsha performance is from the South Africa oral tradition, sung a capella in Gospel style. Their repertoire includes a wide variety of songs, sung in Zulu and some in English, such as their very personal version of Shakira’s “Waka Waka”. But at the very heart of the show are the Zulu songs, full of rhythm, style and spirit that deeply belong to this ethnic group.
Hands, feet and the entire body give the rhythm and create the choreography with a crescendo of feelings and joy. From the very first moments of their performances, they completely captivate their audience who by end of the show are left breathless, often deeply moved.
