Amani choir concert at Home

Posted: Jun 17, 2019 by Amani Creatives in Uncategorized

The Amani Creatives started off the evening with a collection of songs from different parts of the world and sung in different languages, representing the members of the choir. These were really engaging arrangements of folk songs with some echoes of the lyrics in English, which helped the audience to connect with the music but really you could have listened to them sing in any language and understood the beauty of the emotion. There were a few soloists who stood out, and the second song in particular had a fantastic unison trio with voices that blended really nicely. Although Amani Creatives focus on celebrating the music traditions of Africa, this particular song included a section in Syrian sung by a Syrian refugee who was simply superb.
