Bala Brothers

Air date: Tues., March 3, 9:30 pm

The Bala Brothers are three gifted South African siblings lifted out of poverty through their sheer musical talent and already stars in their own country. Recorded in the Lyric Theatre in Johannesburg, this concert presents the multi-talented group accompanied by a chamber orchestra, a five-piece band and South Africa’s famous Drakensburg Boys Choir, where all three Bala Brothers received some of their earliest musical training.

The trio presents a mix of South African-influenced music, from Lion King favorites like “Circle of Life” and “He Lives in You” to Paul Simon’s “Under African Skies.” The show closes with a roof-raising performance of “Pata Pata,” the joyous dance song made famous by South Africa’s “First Lady of Song,” Miriam Makeba.
