Known as Australia's premier gospel choir, Cafe of the Gate of Salvation's a cappella performances are inspired by African-American vocal traditions, where singing in perfect harmony also represents a kind of bonding or unity, often through adversity. Cafe of the Gate of Salvation have taken the passion that comes from pure gospel or spiritual music and made it an exciting, crucial hallmark of their work.
That is to say, this not merely a large group of people with excellent pitch. They first started performing in 1986, and since that time, have gone on to sing at African-American churches in the USA and been chosen to appear alongside visitors like Nelson Mandela and Bishop Desmond Tutu. They have also lent their vocal talents to pop artists such as Jenny Morris, Tim Finn and Kate Ceberano.
