“A Voice of Hope” in Essen

OnĀ May 10 and 11, Pumeza Matshikiza sings two concerts in Essen. Conductor Johannes Klumpp leads the orchestra in “A voice of hope”, a journey around the world. Starting with Mozart, Gluck and Purcell, the program continues with an exciting mix of American and African influences, of modernity and tradition: from Gershwin’s “Summertime” to Jimi Hendrix, from the jazz icon Abdullah Ibrahim to the legendary “Click Song”, which made Miriam Makeba world-famous. Let yourself be carried away by an artist who combines worlds with her unique timbre to create something new.
