A New Group for a New Decade

We are Africa Soul

Africa Soul was founded in January 2021. The group 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.

The group comprises 5 – 16 members, ranging from a smaller group of four singers and a keyboard player, to a core group of 8 singers and a keyboard player, to a group of 16 members including a seven-piece brass/band section comprising players from the Johannesburg Big Band (kit, bass, guitar and a 3 piece horn section). Each group make-up would be according to the event requirement.
