The Ndlovu Youth Choir’s album Africa is topping charts on iTunes after its release a few days ago.

“People have preconceptions of what a choir should sound like. We want to cross those barriers and make our music accessible to all. It is important to us that our repertoire enables us to do that whilst always retaining the beauty, vibrancy and energy of Africa,” said Schmitt.

The first version of the Ndlovu Youth Choir emerged in 2009. A decade later, it remains a vital part of the local community and an important way for its members to achieve excellence in a region facing widespread poverty and other socio-economic challenges., where it became the first choir and first South African act to reach the finals of the show.Ralf Schmitt

However, everyone is extremely excited to share our music with the world,” said Schmitt of the new album.“We were humbled to become the first choir ever to reach the final of. The support we received from not only South Africa but across the African continent was inspiring and motivated us to represent the beauty of our magical continent.

“What you experience when the choir perform is the expression of pure emotion. With deep experiences of pain and suffering also comes the ability to express more joy. "The choir’s ability to sing from a place of pure authenticity and raw emotion is what transforms and instantly brightens any song they interpret, forming an immediate connection with anyone on the receiving end of their music."
