This May, Destiny Africa arrived in Germany for the first time. They had been invited to spend 10 days performing in different venues as part of the 5th International Choir Festival (Baden baden) alongside national choirs from Russia, Mexico, Germany and many other countries.

Most of the choirs were choral and so Destiny Africa brought a very different flavor. The audiences love our lively drumming, dancing and singing and we made so many new friends!

Everyday Destiny Africa performed on a different stage from churches, to concert halls to the Prestigious Euro Park.

Destiny Africa even sang in German?  Performing “Schau auf die Welt” (Look at the world) on an open air stage with several other choirs was a great highlight.

After spending the day at a German School, joining in their lessons we were special guests at a joint schools choir concert. At the end of the evening the local Mayor presented us with a certificate of thanks.

We were wonderfully looked after by the team in Germany who had also organized some exciting trips to the Queens Castle and the ‘World of Mechanical Instruments’ in Bruchsal, and the Zoo in Karlsruhe.

Thank you so much to Sebastian and the whole team for making us feel so welcome in Germany. Thank you for all the wonderful experiences we had and to all the new friends that we made. Destiny Africa loved Germany and we look forward to seeing you again next tour!
