After coming across a bootleg cassette of South African township music in the early 80s, Paul Simon was totally smitten by the infectious & irresistible rhythms… He travelled to Johannesburg, spending two weeks there, recording with the absolute cream of South African musicians.
That epic session, went on to form the basis of Simon’s most commercially successful album ever – Graceland. The record became a true global phenomenon, winning Grammys in both 1987 & 88, shifting 5 million copies Stateside & then another 2.5 million copies in the UK alone. The Graceland album spawned the hit singles, ‘Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes’, ‘The Boy in the Bubble’ & it’s biggest smash – ‘You Can Call Me Al.’
The richness & harmony of the Choir’s rhythmic, evocative & empowering, voices have created an overwhelming musical event, for anyone lucky enough to experience this special performance of Paul Simon’s Graceland.
