WINDHOEK - African Vocals, an Acappella band from Mondesa, Swakopmund, will be fundraising in the Namib Primary School hall in Swakopmund, on September, supported by Elemotho. Funds shall be raised for the third Germany tour the group is planning for May 2019, after tours to Germany in 2014 and 2017. Tickets are for N$80 and will be available from August 6. Contact 0814217546 for tickets.
The band consists of ten young lads between 21 and 28 years who all started as singers at school, church and youth choirs. It was founded in 2014 as a male Acappella band. Since then, they have been on a double mission.
They want to show the true and authentic Namibian culture, music, traditions and spirit to the world and convey a positive image of Africa in general. But with their township background, they also want to give hope, inspiration and encouragement to young people with the same background, to have a dream and to work hard for it.
That is why the group always donates a share of the tour income to charity projects in Mondesa, to give back to the community. For their fundraising concert, the African Vocals were lucky to win over several guests as supporters. So, the Marimba Group from the Mondesa Youth Opportunities (MYO) will perform as well as the Swakopmunder Männergesangverein (SMGV), the oldest male choir in Namibia.
As special guest, African Vocals are honoured and happy to welcome the well-known Namibian artist Elemotho, who is a big believer in youth development and cultural heritage, and who did not hesitate to give his support and confirm his participation in the concert.
