Company: Drakensberg Boys Choir


‘The world-renowned Drakensberg Boys Choir is a unique institution with a 51-year history. Throughout this time it has been a beacon of the performing arts in South Africa. The calibre of our old boys speaks for themselves: Deon Lotz (actor), Terence Bridgett (actor), Paul du Toit (author), Loyiso Bala (tenor), Phelo Bala (baritone), Dawid Boverhoff (musician) to name but a few.’ – Bernard Krüger

The world-renowned Drakensberg Boys Choir are making their debut performance at the National Arts Festival this year, with a programme of evocative, entertaining, haunting and beautiful music, ranging across musical styles — from the Baroque to contemporary composers, as well as pop hits, a bit of Afrikaans and some toe-tapping South African Gospel.

Audiences will also be treated to the choir’s latest folklore set titled Lalela – Zulu (Listen – Zulu), a work which celebrates 25 years of freedom in our country. This set takes the form of a theatrical music journey, depicting elements of rural and city life in South Africa pre-1994, as well as our path to reconciliation and the celebration of our diverse nation and its music.

The Drakensberg Boys Choir is known for energetic performances, African rhythms, exquisite harmonies and synchronisation. The choir travels extensively, both internationally and locally, and has built up a large following of music lovers across the globe. Recent tours with sell-out performances include the USA, Korea, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Japan and Switzerland, with a tour to the UK planned for September 2019.

Artistic Director: Bernard Krüger (SA)
2nd Conductor: Tobias Stückelberger (Switzerland)
