Clap and Tap music hard to resist

Clap and Tap Choirs of Botswana Association (CCBA) assembled choirs for the fourth annual clap and tap gospel festival held at Mantlwaneng Theatre on Saturday. The festival, which is meant to revive the not so popular clap and tap music in Botswana, was held under the theme ‘Proudly Celebrating Botswana’s 50-Years Of Independence In Style’.

Clap and tap music has similarities of both traditional gospel music and choral music, but the main difference is that clap and tap has no instruments and it combines vocals with clapping of hands in a way that creates a fine tune and tempo.

In order to show the audience what the night had in store, the mass choir started the festival with touching and soulful sounds of Re A Ho Boka Morena. 

Giving a brief of the society, CCBA Patron Barulaganye Mogotsi said they took off immediately after registering the society. 

“It’s our fourth event, these choirs are now our members. It’s a special year because we are celebrating 50-years,” he said.

He said the festival is building and showing what music can do for everyone.

A choir from Spiritual Healing Church in Mochudi called Choir D began the festival in style with a beautiful piece titled Amen. The choir, which recorded their first album in 2001 showed their visitors how

it’s done in Botswana.  Choir D is not just a group of voices working together, but they are also powerful.

The South African visitors  from Isaac and The Mighty Messengers came on stage to support the local acts.  The crowd loved them and their songs brought a clear indicator that listening to clap and tap gospel music is not only fun but also healing.

Having Isaac, lead singer and frontman, is the most special element about the choir. 

The way he performs and interacts with his choir, Isaac and the Mighty Messengers delivered music in the form of therapy.  Their clap and tap is the type of music, which can console someone when the chips are down.

The festival continued until the next morning and choirs like Baineetseng Ho Jehofa Gospel Choir and Babiditsweng Ke Lentswe Gospel Choir brought the house down with authoritative gospel.

Their soulful music brought high emotions in the hall and their musical glory was felt.
