THE GUGULETHU TENORS

Afro-operatic pop sensations The Gugulethu Tenors are an inspiration to us all .Their journey to success, which started more than 10 years ago as four high school boys shared a dream – a dream of being on stage and entertaining thousands . Self-taught vocalists, Mpendulo Yawa, Khaya Silevu, Xolani November and Loyiso Dlova, were selected from scores of hopeful entries at Fezeka High School in Gugulethu to enter a music competition called the Prompt Voice Search And of course they won it , hands down . The Gugulethu Tenors have a deep intuitive love of Opera, a genre not generally associated with the township. By incorporating contemporary and ethnic elements in their music, they have created a unique genre of their own, capturing the hearts of audiences across South Africa. Their repertoire includes operatic favourites such as O Sole Mio, Nessun Dorma and Nella Fantasia, as well as popular songs like The Prayer, Miriam Makeba’s Pata Pata and even Gé Korsten’s Liefling.

They have wowed huge audiences all over Africa as well as in Paris, FRANCE *Nijmegen, HOLLAND * Zurich, SWITZERLAND * Bern, SWITZERLAND where with their original compositions like O Afrika! and Nyamezela have had audiences on their feet at every performance. The Gugulethu Tenors’ ambition goes beyond success as performers – collectively they aim to be role models for South Africa’s youth and, through their singing, to showcase the richness and diversity of South Africa’s cultural heritage. This is of course is very much in keeping with the ambitions of Free Concerts in the Park – we welcome them to the wunderfull world of Concerts in the Park.
