Founded by Beverly Bryer and Adam Howard in January 2020, Africa Soul is a first for South Africa. Their music is pure soul and blues, taking songs from the 1950s/1960s era of Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Otis Redding and other music icons and giving those ‘old’ classics a ‘young’ rebirth.
Most importantly and uniquely, re-working those well-known classics with African harmonies and lyrics, and in such a way, bringing songs from a bygone era to today’s audience of both an older and younger generation, to either reminisce about, or to hear for the first time. Songs from the American South, to the African South.
Our aim is to introduce Africa Soul to the private, corporate and theatrical events market, to bring you something new, different and exciting, for all age groups who want to experience beautiful music and exceptional voices – interpretations of an amazing musical era brought to life again in this new decade.
