Lesedi Show Choir attracts the most talented young people. The 30 members of this choir are between 18 and 30 years old and originate from the township Ratanda/Gauteng (South Africa). In dealing with the musical heritage of South Africa, they reconnect with their roots, they discover their traditions and construct their own cultural identity.


They are proud to represent African culture, music and dance at home and in other countries. Most members have been to Germany and performed in joint concerts with the German Moko Choirs.
