Senegal St. Joseph Gospel Choir

Presented by Irvine Barclay Theatre at Unknown

The Senegal St. Joseph Gospel Choir, from Dakar, has delighted audiences throughout the world with its beautiful harmonies and driving rhythms. These charismatic performers, who sing every Sunday at a cathedral in the heart of Dakar's working-class neighborhood, interpret gospel spirituals, traditional African songs and the magnificent masses that Julien Jouga, the choir's founder, composed in his country's four national languages. In an inspiring program that includes "Amazing Grace," "The Storm is Passing Over," "Day Oh," and more, the company of 15 singers and 4 traditional Senegalese drummers combines to express the harmonies that exist between the cultures of Senegal. A symbol of peace, humanity and fraternity, the choir is acclaimed for the musical exuberance and sheer joy that it brings.
