Choir: Bridge Walkers
The Bridge Walker’s Choir was founded in 1992 as a Lutheran Church Youth Group to visit Germany on a youth exchange programme. The Bridge Walker’s choir sing gospel and traditional Namibian songs, especially in the Damara/Nama or Khoe-Khoe language and the click sounds of these languages usually fascinates the audiences.
Lyrics of their songs are based on everyday life of Namibians and themes include songs for the rain, for fire, for summer holidays, struggle and songs about life in Katutura.
