If there was ever a year we needed extra holiday cheer, it's 2020. That's why Ivangeli Gospel are gearing up to release their very Special six-track Christmas album – ‘UKHUSIMUSI (Christmas Carols)’ just in time for the holiday season.
‘UKHISIMUSI (Christmas Carols)’ is the Durban based Ivangeli Gospel’s debut EP, paving the way for their forthcoming album in February 2021. The EP features five popular traditional Christmas Carols sang in isiZulu and one original track. The Carols have been interpreted in melodious, African soulful arrangements that guarantee that the whole family will be singing together during this festive season.
The project has been produced and arranged by the Legendary Gospel Producer/singer/Composer Sipho Mbele and the maestro singer/songwriter/musical director Zolani Maseko - Mkhize. It features some incredible, fresh talent who have been invited as guest vocalists on the project, in addition to the producers’ vocal performances on some of the songs.
Both Sipho and Zolani have achieved their fair share of success with Sipho having written and produced hits for Gospel artists like Deborah Fraser, Sifiso Ncwane and Lundi to name but a few, while Zolani has been a music director in different projects that includes the popular SA Gospel Awards.. This gives the project an edge and great chance at making it one of your favourite music experiences.
The timing of this release is perfect as it ushers us to the Christmas holidays in style as loved ones come together to celebrate this dear season. “UKHISIMUSI (Christmas Carols)” will be available on all digital music platforms for streaming and downloads from this Friday, 27th of November.
