The Ngqoko Women’s Ensemble | Free Performance

Music / Sun Gallery

The Ngqoko Women’s Ensemble hails from the Eastern Cape, and sing haunting split-tone and overtone ancestral songs. The rare tradition of overtonal or throat-singing only exists within the Tuva of Mongolia, the Inuit of Canada, and Xhosa of South Africa. These women are a local group, long under-recognised at home, but who have toured internationally. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience an ancient and rare tradition and to witness these powerful women perform on home soil.
