Afrovibes Global Choir – Let Your Voice Be Heard!

September 3rd, 2014 12:15 pm

To mark the opening of Afrovibes 2014 the words of Nelson Mandela have been set to music in a specially commissioned traditional English choral piece, to be sung by a virtual choir. Combining recordings of voices from across the world, the finished performance, entitled No Easy Road to Freedom, will be very much a tribute to the South African freedom struggle, accompanied by a video which will launch at Afrovibes 2014 in October.

This promises to be a once-in-a-lifetime event – and we want you to be a part of it.

To take part, we’re inviting you to upload a recording of your voice, adding your spirit and passion to this unique musical event and joining us as Afrovibes marks the 20th Anniversary of democracy in South Africa.

Click here to download all you need to join in this exciting project – and please tell your friends, we hope as many people as possible will want to be a part of this!

The deadline for your finished recording to be submitted is 11pm on Fri 12 Sep, to give the technical team time to create the final mix.

No Easy Road to Freedom has been created for Afrovibes by MD Tim Cumper and the team at South Hill Park Arts Centre in Bracknell, Berkshire, as their special contribution to this year’s festival. People from all over the country, and the world, are being invited to share their voices in this global commission.
