The Got Soul Choir was founded by Maryam Ghaffari in Edinburgh in 2012 out of a love of soul music, a passion to serve her community and to make a difference. In four years, the Choir has now run hundreds of workshops, performed in some of the country's most prestigious music venues and expanded to Glasgow, Dundee and Fife.
How to describe Got Soul Choir? You could try raucous, passionate, fun, energetic, exciting but at the same time it is almost impossible to nail it down with a few words - you really have to experience it. Whether they sing as a 100 strong choir at one of their electrifying concerts or as a sextet at a wedding, they touch, move and inspire.
Our workshop series (term) runs for 14 weeks twice a year February and September each culminating in a grand, uplifting raucous concert.
From Spring 2018, our workshops are held on Tuesday evenings 6.30pm-8pm at Edinburgh Academy. To get on the soul train, groove the good vibes and joining the fun please book yourself a FREE TASTER SESSION!!!
