BBC’s Batswana choir comes to Lower Clapton
Choir from BBC’s No. 1 Ladies’ Detective agency perform in Hackney next Friday night
An African choir featured on a BBC show will perform a sizzling show next Friday in Lower Clapton, as part of its UK tour.
The Sedibeng Choral Society from Botswana provided the music to the BBC’s hit TV show, No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency – based on a series of novels about Batswana detective Mma Precious Ramotswe.
On their first trip to the UK, The Sedibeng Choral Society will stage a choreographed performance in St John at Hackney Church, called ‘Made in Botswana’, including traditional and contemporary African music.
They will perform with community choir, Hackney Singers, in whose homes they will stay.
