Insingizi, Iyasa dazzle Dschungel

VIENNA, AUSTRIA — The season is changing. Soon the leaves will be falling to the ground, but there is nothing more warming than listening to live African music to uplift your soul.


Zimbabwean originated Insingizi and Iyasa together performed on Saturday evening at the Dschungel.

Their melodic a cappella voices and dance filled the venue with an African ambience. Drumming, singing and dance seem to draw a bigger audience into the venue at the Dschungel. I suppose the best part about attending their events, is that one always feels included because there is so much interaction with the audience.

They are also always a good reminder of how music really brings everyone together back in Africa and how it does the same in Vienna.

I must say that some might have been taken aback by the dancing because Iyasa has moves that make your jaw drop.

Insingizi’s harmonic voices are always such a pleasure to listen to. It really was one of those exciting moments one has had, after a very long time.

There are funny aspects about their performances as well, the lyrics of one particular song performed by the Ottakringer Boys, I Love You Beer about their love and passion for beer was extremely hilarious.

I think this might have been the highlight of the show because everyone seems to have sung along and meant every word. It felt like a night under African skies, really was loads of fun.
