London African Gospel Choir

Voices Unwrapped | Songlines Encounters

The London African Gospel Choir makes its Kings Place debut in Voices Unwrapped and Songlines Festival, featuring uplifting gospel song and dance from all over Africa.


Famous for their critically-acclaimed interpretation of Paul Simon’s Graceland, London African Gospel Choir have had successful tours of the US, Ireland and the UK, and appearances with Emile Sande, Annie Lennox, Idris Elba, Tom Jones and the Soweto Gospel Choir. This unique pan- African choir of joy-bringers, set up by singer & dancer Crystal Kassi, is packed with talent from the entire African diaspora, including South Africa, Zimbabwe, Ghana, Kenya, Zaire, Ivory Coast, Guadeloupe, Jamaica, Uganda and the Congo.

The choir was founded with the aim of creating a platform excellence for the national and international promotion of Africans (including the diaspora) as musicians, singers, and participators in the creative industries in general. Crystal is passionate in her mission to popularise this distinctive tradition with the secular world. African Gospel music has developed a character distinct from familiar American Gospel music: the choir are doing their bit to share this inspiring music with the world.
