Melodies from Africa, Roots Music from Southern Africa presented Vienna with an ensemble of Zimbabwean and Austrian, Slovakian, and Madagascan artist at this years event. The sweet voices of acapella female group Nobuntu, BraZaMa featuring Chornisen Choir, Jeys Marabini and Insingizi.

This was an evening filled with the African spirit, the all female Zimbabwean group Nobuntu, inspired by the Mahotella Queens really has their unique flair, their voices resonated taking the audience on a journey through Africa. Harmonized these ladies sounded like angels, the audience really seemed to have been drawn by the sultry sounds. The group's performance was really fantastic.

BraZaMa featuring Chornissen was striking as the choir sung in Zulu, Tsonga, Madagascikara, including other languages. Seeing them perform was really enlightening, language has no barriers because this choir really does it well.

Insingizi the all male acapella group once again lit the stage with their performance its always delightful seeing them perform.

When Jeys Marabini and his band took stage, wow all came together, performances with Nobuntu and the Chornissen choir escalated the atmosphere. Many among the audience danced and enjoyed the music.

Roots Music from Southern Africa 2013, was definitely one of the most memorable African held events of 2013. We look forward to 2014.

We at Africanlife would like to thank the organizers for such an amazing event!
