Baobab Sisters is a female vocal group singing South African music. The group consists of seven professional, Danish singers and has existed since 2009.
The group has specialised in singing South African music in local languages such as Zulu, Xhosa and Sotho. The repertoire consists of a variety of music from traditional songs with dance moves, political songs, to new pop melodies about universal topics such as love and sorrow. Baobab Sisters tour in Denmark and South Africa and have worked with a lot of great South African musicians, such as Hugh Masekela, Ntsika Ngxanga, Mbongeni Ngema and The Soil.
About Baobab Sisters
The former South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu has said:
"Baobab Sisters made a tremendous contribution to racial harmony and understanding.
I hope many others will see just how you can touch the hearts ofthose of another race and nationality. They are such charming teachers, teaching South Africans about racial harmony and friendship, breaking down walls of misunderstanding and prejudice."
