A Scottish/African Group group presenting original songs from composer/playwright Neo Vilakazi, based in Edinburgh.

Blending rich harmonies, performed by supremely talented artists, the vocals and dancing of the choir were described as "simply stunning" (Scotsman).

★★★★★ MusicalTheatreReview.com

Inspired by historical events around the Shona tribe in Africa and socio-political turmoil of Robert Mugabe's rule of Zimbabwe, the music comes from Neo’s multidimensional work, presenting a powerful cross-cultural love story that transcends racial barriers. This critically acclaimed show was first performed and sold out at the Edinburgh International Festival in 2021 - get your tickets now!
