The Ndlovu Youth Choir have made a name for themselves after they collaborated with South African flautist, Wouter Kellerman to perform Ed Sheeran’s ‘Shape of You’ in isiZulu.
The choir is notorious for taking chart-topping songs and putting their unique spin on it and the Ed Sheeran hit was their latest project. The group don’t just perform in isiZulu, but they create music in all eleven official languages and they also love experimenting with different genres.
The Youth Choir have a wide range of music styles, ranging from choral music to Afro-jazz, acapella to modern gospel and everything in between.
Briefly.co.za learned that while it started off as an after-school project, the choir has taken off and they have gained immense popularity amongst South Africans.
The South African reports that Wouter Kellerman has had an outstanding career as one of Mzansi’s most prestigious flute players. He has cracked numerous Grammy and SAMA nominations for his talents and even composed an original piece for Nelson Mandela.
Kellerman is also known for covering popular songs so a collaboration with the Ndlovu Youth Choir was bound to happen sooner or later.
