Hedreich Nichols

Out of Africa

Hedreich’s concert series with The Spirit of Gospel choir played in Zürich to full houses. The 70 singers did an amazing job under the direction of Beat Dähler. The evening began “in Africa” showing the bitter conditions of slavery’s beginnings as the rhythms and melodies were transported–captured and shackeled–across the Atlantic. West African music, field songs, early Spirituals, Gospels and even Soul displayed in all its’ glory, the indomitable spirit of a people who managed to thrive in spite of crushing adversity.

Next up on Hedreich’s agenda is a short stint with Polo Hofer. Check back by to get the details. We’ll leave a light on for ya…
