Unusual Music (16) A Gospel choir from the heart of Africa

Although I cannot find background information (except that they might be from Tanzania) on this talented group, their music is  joyful and so very uplifting (to say the least) . It seems as if each individual singer sings with all that is within him or her to God, as a result the sound is different from what we are used to, but extremely beautiful, as we imagine what it will sound like when we all will give glory to our God and King in heaven one day! Enjoy!
