The Drakensberg Boys Choir took on the important subject of poaching during their latest performance. They are currently performing in Japan.
The Drakensberg Boys Choir are currently in Japan performing concerts at various halls and concert venues. The tour is 6 weeks of travel, performance and sight seeing.
The choir have taken on some serious subject matter in their performances and recently posted their latest performance on YouTube.
“We have arrived at Kurashiki Civic Hall. This is a stunning venue! Boys are eager to show what they can do.”
The video is of their song ‘The poachers are coming’. They use the song to tell a story about poaching and make use of gumboot dancing too. The performance was at Kurashiki Civic Hall.
“An excerpt from our 2017 Folklore set “Siphume Afrika” (‘We come from Africa’), a celebration of our diverse South African Wildlife, as well as a plea to end the senseless killing of rhinos for their horns.
Our themed programme highlights a cause very dear to our hearts. The Drakensberg Boys Choir School is committed to support the fight against wild animal poaching everywhere on Earth.”
The boys are having the best time and are even being treated to a day at Japan’s Disneyland. They are travelling non-stop but are maintaining their brilliant work ethic!
“They are tired but as true professionals, keep on giving only of their best.”
Watch the boys take a stand against poaching in the brilliant performance below.
