Acclaimed artists set for Soweto gig

A COLLECTIVE of artists who have appeared in some of the most memorable musicals have now come together to form their own identity and are fast making a name for themselves.

The ensemble, called the Junior Manhattan Brothers, comprises former members of the Soweto Gospel Choir and Ipi 'Ntombi musical shows that travelled the world.

Thabo Motsamai appeared in Iphi 'Ntombi, Sikhuli and Umoja, while the young and vibrant Nathi Radebe sang with the Soweto Gospel Choir and Tshepo Tshola. He also appeared in a film, The Drum, just to name a few out of this ensemble.

OnSunday the group will perform at Leshala Cuisine, 139 Makapane Street, Molapo, Soweto, at a function organised by a Soweto-based networking club.

The ensemble will share the stage with DJ Ziduma-Mo, who will be doing what he does best - taking music fans back to sikiza, bump jive and get downs music of yesteryear.

The spotlight, however, will be on the Junior Manhattan Brothers, who will invigorate the session with their tenor and bass voices.
