The group has performed for the Nelson Mandela Farewell, Oprah and Friends New Year’s Celebration and the FIFA Confederation Cup.

The group has a Canadian connection having been co-founded by musician Holly Wright, along with Jimmy Mulovhedzi who was born in Soweto, South Africa from where the group originates.

The group has been lauded for their “spellbinding” performances as well as for its ability to provide the potential for income for its members. Its members are all from Soweto, a previously marginalized community with an extremely high unemployment rate.

In addition to the performance, the Fort St. John Pan African and Caribbean Society will provide traditional foods before the show.

The show is on Feb.1 and will begin at 7:30 p.m. at the Cultural Centre and tickets can be purchased online at www.npcc.bc.ca or by calling 250-785-1992.
