INALA, the critically acclaimed South African Dance-Musical sensation, will celebrate World Ballet Day on Wednesday 23 October with a concert spectacular at the Royal Albert Hall, bringing together the three-time Grammy® Award-winning Soweto Gospel Choir with multi-award-winning choreographer Mark Baldwin OBE in this unique artistic collaboration.
Featuring Grammy nominated music by the legendary Ladysmith Black Mambazo and Londoner Ella Spira, the show marks Black History Month with a celebration of South Africa today.
INALA delivers all it promises; an uplifting cultural experience, powered by an explosion of live music, song and dance. Soweto Gospel Choir return to London with a company of 16 singers, joining the nine-strong band and 13 international dance stars on stage.
INALA, meaning ‘abundance of goodwill’ in Zulu, was originally conceived and developed to mark 20 years of South African democracy.
Blending the intricate rhythms and infectious harmonies of Soweto Gospel Choir with live percussion, piano and strings, Mark Baldwin’s choreography unites Zulu traditions with classical ballet and contemporary dance.
The production embraces an exhilarating fusion of South African and Western cultures live on stage, to create a unique and vibrant immersive experience.
