Vocal Tunes of the Cape - Virtual Nasheed Concert

Fri Sep 3, 20:00 - Sun Sep 5, 23:00


Vocal Tunes of the Cape presents an Online Nasheed Concert aims to inspire youth and the Muslim community at large. Nasheed is a form of inspirational Dawa which is rendered vocally either a cappella or with instruments. Furthermore, it is a devotional song sang in solo or in chorus as a group.

Aspire Promotions in collaboration with Africa Rise Youth Development Project has put together an exclusive online Nasheed concert for the Muslim Community. Aspire Promotions have been producing and hosting several events for the community ranging from business promotions to entertainment and event planning services. This idea came through a discussion around the Islamic entertainment industry which needs much support within South Africa. The aim for this production is to inspire youth and society. Furthermore, to uplift the viewers spiritually and bring us closer to the remembrance of Almighty through the beautiful melodies.

Let’s take on a journey to discover the backgrounds on our talented Islamic artist in Cape Town:
