Breathe: The Journey

A trio born from the renowned University of Johannesburg Choir takes you through their personal, spiritual and musical discovery by merging a world of genres into a unified sound of heartfelt music. This launch concert sees Sandile, Gabisile and Sizwe off on a journey long-awaited.

Sandile Mcunu, Gabisile Nkosi and Sizwe Mondlane were strangers from Mpumalanga and were fated to meet in the UJ Choir in 2014. The trio, Breathe, began their journey under the name, Benedictus.

The ensemble performed behind and alongside esteemed artists, and the experience earned them an immense sleeve of program-variation, culture – and genre crossing. After 4 years of casual performances, self-discovery led the ensemble to rebrand themselves for a better description to the feeling one gets when listening to the trio, as well as to encompass the merging of music worlds.

Breathe Music is a concept that relates to a feeling, an action and a genre. Experience the journey through a true homecoming launch in partnership with UJ Arts & Culture.
