was formed in Berlin Germany in the
early 1990s. The orchestra constantly performs in the U.S. and
Europe and elsewhere and shares its time mostly between Germany
and the US.
The music offers an exciting mix of African rooted original compositions, in genres from throughout the African Diaspora -- Afro Beats to Blues, Reggae, Brazilian, Afro Cuban, Arabic, Soul and Jazz, and Rap to Gospel. The arrangements, the lyrics and the compositions are solid, highly dynamic, and speak directly to the soul, inviting one to dance and travel. The originality, versatility and flexibility of the music lets BLACK HERITAGE fit well into Jazz, R&B, and World music venues and festivals.
