South Africa's Soweto Gospel Choir won a second consecutive Grammy Award in the category best traditional world music for their album African Spirit at a glitzy ceremony at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles on 10 February.
The Soweto Gospel Choir, whose members are drawn from the churches and communities of South Africa's famous township, have won a Grammy award in the category best traditional world music for their album Blessed.
The Soweto Gospel Choir mixes earthy rhythms with rich harmonies to uplift the soul and express the energy of South Africa. After a 32-date tour of Australia and New Zealand, and four weeks at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, they've yet to go without a standing ovation. Not bad for a group that's only been together since November 2002.
