LONDON AFRICAN GOSPEL CHOIR PERFORMANCE OF PAUL SIMON’S “GRACELAND” AT PLUG

On Saturday 11th November, Plug will play host to The London African Gospel choir who will perform Paul Simon’s Graceland LP in full.

Along with a troupe of accomplished musicians this well renowned group of singers have headlined sell-out shows across London, from corporate and private events to the biggest stages of the city, including the O2 Arena.

The LAGC’s main mission is to “popularise African influenced gospel music within the church and the secular world”, but having worked with musicians such as Emile Sande, Mumford and Sons and Annie Lennox, they are no strangers to popular music and a party atmosphere.

Paul Simon recorded Graceland in South Africa in 1985-6, working with township musicians during Apartheid. The album has since sold over 14 million copies worldwide, and is listed on many most influential album lists, included that of The Rolling Stone Magazine.

It is credited as one of the main albums to help popularise African music in the western world, transcending racial and cultural barriers by mixing pop, rock, zydeco and mbaqanga.

This event will be an unmissable opportunity for fans of all ages and backgrounds to celebrate one of twentieth century music’s best achievements.
