They sang on BBC TV’s programme My Favourite Hymns during which Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu was interviewed.

International tenor SIPHO FUBESI returns to the stage by demand. Sipho is in South Africa after a residency at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden.

ASILI – “The Originals” (Swahili) is a vocal ensemble that presents a fusion of classical music, opera, pop and jazz, deeply intertwined with traditional African Choral undertones. Their mission is to create magical music moments that warm the hearts of audiences.

Soprano CHARLOTTE MHLONGA received a nomination for Best Emerging Artist at the kykNET Fiesta Awards, and along with Bongani J Kubheka, was nominated in the Best Performance in Classical Music category for their production of La Serva Padrona.
