The London African Gospel Choir take the Junction by storm
Enjoy the irresistible sounds of Paul Simon’s Graceland brought to life this month by the London African Gospel Choir, who’ll be performing the album in full at the Junction on the 6th. It’s now 30 years since this seminal record was released, inspired by a bootleg cassette of South African township music which Simon had stumbled across. Smitten, he travelled to Johannesburg and recorded with some of the cream of South Africa’s musicians – an epic session which resulted in Graceland. A global phenomenon, the album spawned iconic singles You Can Call Me Al, Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes and The Boy in the Bubble, selling around 15 million copies worldwide.
Tickets from £19.50.
