Albany Town Hall will be filled with the sounds of Africa when The Voice of Africa comes to town.

Audience members can expect to be immersed in the African culture of dancing, music, drumming, stories and worship.

Lead vocalist Bramwell Nemhara said the night will take the audience on an adventure through Africa.

“It will be a chance for people to learn about African life,” he said.

“There will be people from Africa who will be telling their story, of their struggle through life and how they made it to here.”

Bringing hope for Africa

Mr Nemhara said the key message behind his songs was to bring hope for Africa.

“Some of them are Christian songs and others are pure African songs,” he said.

“The message in those songs are of hope for Africa.”

“The message in those songs are of hope for Africa.

“Africa has been considered a ‘dark continent’ for a long time, meaning there are a lot of challenges and Africa will never be out of poverty.

“These songs will bring hope for Africa that it can get better to contribute to the world.”

Mr Nemhara, who is from Zimbabwe, was raised around music and wants to take The Voice of Africa to Perth.

Raising funds to help children in Zimbabwe go to school 

The concert also aims at raising funds or receiving donations such as clothes, to be sent back to Zimbabwe to help children go to school.

“Fifty dollars here can pay for a child for two terms in school,” Mr Nemhara said.

“Any little bit of what we get will be able to help the children.”

The Voice of Africa will be performing in the Town Hall on July 24 at 6pm.
