Paul Simon's 'Graceland'

Performed by The London African Gospel Choir

Doors 7pm

Show Starts 8pm

Ages 14+

Try as you might, you simply cannot get a ticket to see this uplifting & amazing show in London… Every venue that puts tickets on sale, sells out in an instant. In just one month, all the six Jazz Cafe shows presented in the capital hit capacity, and received rave reviews from those attending.
Thirty years after its release, 17 members of the ‘London African Gospel Choir‘, backed the LAGC’s excellent band, perform their own powerful twist on Paul Simon’s ‘Graceland’ album @ Concorde 2, delivering the Graceland album from start to finish.

After coming across a bootleg cassette of South African township music in the early 80s, Paul Simon was totally smitten by the infectious & irresistible rhythms… He travelled to Johannesburg, spending two weeks there, recording with the absolute cream of South African musicians.
That epic session, went on to form the basis of Simon’s most commercially successful album ever – Graceland. The record became a true global phenomenon, winning Grammys in both 1987 & 88, shifting 5 million copies Stateside & then another 2.5 million copies in the UK alone. The Graceland album spawned the hit singles, ‘Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes’, ‘The Boy in the Bubble’ & it’s biggest smash – ‘You Can Call Me Al.’

The richness & harmony of the Choir’s rhythmic, evocative & empowering, voices have created an overwhelming musical event, for anyone lucky enough to experience this special performance of Paul Simon’s Graceland.
