“His performances are optimistic and soulful, delivered with an intensity that captures the attention and embraces the heart.” —L.A. Times
One of South Africa’s foremost songwriters and a singer so distinctive he is known in his country simply as “The Voice,” Vusi Mahlasela unites South African folk rhythms with a global palette of pop, blues, and soul. First given widespread exposure in America via the critically acclaimed 2003 documentary Amandla! A Revolution in Four-Part Harmony, he has gone on to delight and inspire audiences nationwide—including that of his sold-out Stanford debut in early 2010. In the Los Angeles Times’s words: “His performances are optimistic and soulful, delivered with an intensity that captures the attention and embraces the heart.” Stanford Talisman opens the concert.
