Gospel From Mother Africa by Moroka Baptist Choir

This African gospel choir album is a rhythmical and moving celebration of devotional gospel music by renowned artists, featuring Tumelo Moloi and the Moroka Baptist Choir. You'll hear powerful South African performers singing some of the best South African gospel that comes recommended for young and old alike.

From the all-embracing rhythms of Sibemunye Africa to the beautiful Somlandlela ("We will follow") and the heartfelt We thank you and the Thank you Prayer, this album is gospel at its best.

Also included is a mighty rendition of Amazing Grace, and an inspiring rendition of the South African national anthem - Nkosi sikelel' iAfrika - that is bound to give you goose bumps...

The South African Moroka Baptist Choir is blessed to include highly talented vocalists Tumelo Moloi, Lettie Tau, Spencer Sokhela and Mande de Jesus, and they bring together their musical prowess to sing an inspirational tapestry of powerful bass melodies, heartfelt rhythms and soaring choruses.

More than five languages, including Xhosa, English, Zulu, Swahili and Lingala, are represented on this gospel album.

Gospel from Mother Africa is authentic African gospel music that can easily be listened to as a natural tonic. For anyone that enjoys gospel, and especially South African gospel, the album is an album that you will find yourself playing (even) more than you might have expected.

"Worship and concern, care and forgiveness, praise and validation, love and acceptance spread through all our lives. This collection of contemporary songs, hymns, prayers and poems touch on these themes", says the album's producer, Andre Abrahamse.

As much as this is an album is about spirituality, it's also an album that could make you think deeply about wider social issues like the ever-present need for morality, peace and compassion on the African continent.

"In Africa we need to reach out to each other over the length and breadth of our continent. We have much to learn from each other and need to protect each other from common scourges such as HIV/Aids, hunger, war and religious and tribal intolerance. Through the medium of music we can connect and start to bring this to reality," is the appeal from Abrahamse"

One this is absolutely for certain, South Africa has soul, it has character and it has spirit; and our brothers and sisters from the Moroka Baptist Choir are responsible for an absolutely fantastic representation of this.
