This was truly a High Dynamic Range (HDR)
performance — musically & visually.
Non-stop celebration of HOPE & JOY.
What a delight.
And it was FREE!
Thank YOU (again) to the amazing “William H. Gile” Trust
that put on these FREE concerts in Concord, NH.
The “Summer of Love Concert” in June 2018
was brilliant — this was equally good.
This time I knew it was going to be good. I am a BIG “Ladysmith Black Mambazo” fan (and I have seen them live at least twice) and I kind of knew, intuitively, that this Choir would be in that mould. They were and they did NOT disappoint.
The ‘jubilation‘ mentioned on their Website (above) is a real good description. I also saw, in the concert program, that the U.K. ‘The Scotsman’ had called their performance: ‘riot of exuberance‘. Yes, that is a great description too.
High energy & ultra dynamic. Hence, why HDR — High Dynamic Range — came to my mind as I watched them, entranced and enthralled.
This concert was a part of their tribute to the GREAT MAN, Nelson Mandela’s 100th anniversary year.
As such right through the concert they set out to pay tribute to:
And in each instance they succeeded brilliantly.
An inspired, celebratory performance that was uplifting & motivational but at the same time a reminder of where we have all been (in terms of oppression) and where we might still head! It made you think. It made you realize that people will prevail. We need great leaders like Nelson Mandela.
Their CDs are available at Amazon. They will make great Christmas presents.
