Album Biography

Upliftment – inspiration – spiritual healing – comfort, all culminating in making a joyful noise about God’s love – this is essentially what Joyous Celebration is all about.  The gospel project, now in its fifth year, has it’s genesis in the first democratic elections held in South Africa.  Jabu Hlongwane, Mthunzi Namba and Lindelani Mkhize, all musicians and producers in their own right, inspired by the peaceful transition to democracy, decided to put together a musical tribute to God, thanking him for an essentially bloodless transition to freedom in South Africa.

The result was the Joyous Celebration concept – a gathering of musicians from diverse musical backgrounds and genres, coming together in song to give thanks for the New South Africa.  Since then, Joyous Celebration has grown from strength to strength, incorporating musical greats such as Sibongile Khumalo, Sharon Dee, Vuyo Mokoena, Ntokozo Masinga, Margaret Motsage, Vicky Vilakazi and Benjamin Dube over the years.  No content with only using ‘established’ names, however, Mthunzi, Jabu and Lindelani have been tireless in their dedication to unearthing new talent.  Every year, they audition unknown vocalists, thereby ensuring that each year, at least half of the singers are new members.
