BWV Biography

BWV is a very talented and determined vocal ensemble of 8 young men from Imizamo Yethu, Mandela Park, Hout Bay. 

They sing their own original material & popular South African songs which they have adapted to their traditional style of 'Isicathamiya'. The energetic group was founded in 2001 out of a deep passion for music and an intense need to reflect their experiences of growing up, living and surviving in a township in the ‘new’ South Africa . The dedicated singers have continued to make a name for themselves despite the immense obstacles they are constantly faced with due to their socio-economic background.
