Hallertau Brewery presents: The Township Kwelas - live at Hallertau.

Hailing from all corners of the world, this group of six talented musicians pay homage to the beautiful sound of Kwela music and other African styles. With its hypnotic rhythms and lush horns, this music reeks of African township flavour.

‘Kwela’ comes from the Zulu word meaning ‘get up’. It is used to describe the irresistible blend of jive/swing that developed in the South African townships during the 40’s and 50’s and the tradition penny whistle melodies.

The group play classics from the likes of Spoke Mashiyane, Mirian Makeba, Kippie Moeketsi and much more.
