5 pm Cultural Collage World Music Festival presents >>Africa Entsha Vocal Workshop
Africa Entsha were discovered busking in a rarely visited part of Johannesburg, South Africa.  Formerly known as Soweto Entsha, they were catapulted into the limelight when they performed at the2010 FIFA World Cup Opening Ceremony in Johannesburg.    By the following year they were wowing audiences in France, Cuba and at the Edinburgh Fringe in the UK, where they scooped The Spirit of the Fringe Award.  Now the group have changed their name to Africa Entsha, which in Zulu means “New Africa”.   Africa Entsha’s performances come straight from the South African oral tradition, acapella sung in a Gospel style.  At the very heart of the performances lie Zulu songs, but their repertoire also includes doo wop and pure pop covers.  Africa Entsha completely captivate their audiences with their rhythm, style and spirit and the sheer energy of their dance moves.
