A Malay choir, The 7 Steps Cultural Group, shared the stage with the culturally diverse university choir in the historic suburb on Saturday.
The Wits Choir is visiting the region and partnering with several music ensembles to experience local choral compositions.
Founder of the 7 Steps Cultural Group, Kader Miller, said the performance came together when the conductor of Wits Choir, Dalene Hoogenhout, sought out a Malay cultural singing choir .
“Dalene contacted a tour guide and said she wanted to collaborate with a Malay choir, and as the Bo-Kaap Ghoema Theatre is a tourist attraction, the guide suggested us. We didn’t just focus on the music.
