Africa Entsha are the smart, slick Acappella five-piece who reached a global audience performing at the 2015 World Cup opening ceremony. Distinctive from the other African music shows that have stormed the Fringe in recent years, they freely blend western pop elements of the male vocal harmony tradition into their performance, making for a diverse set which draws on the vibrancy of 1950s doo-wop, the “all-singing, all-dancing” presentation of the 1960s soul groups, the more saccharine tendencies of the modern R&B outfits as much as the soft, healing invocations and exhilarating spirit of their own tribal cultures.
