Their joyous and uplifting voices marry the intricate rhythms and harmonies of their Zulu traditions to the sounds and sentiments of gospel music.

This will be a very rare intimate performance from the South African ensemble, who will be returning to Leeds for the first time since they performed at the ceremony at which Nelson Mandela received the Freedom of the City in 2001.
