Founded in 1988, Amandla is a chorus based in Greenfield, Massachusetts and made up of singers from all over the Pioneer Valley. The name Amandla comes from the Zulu word for “power.” We celebrate the power of community.
Every season, we present new works in addition to gems from our vast repertoire and work with guest artists to round out our mission of singing world music while remaining deeply rooted in our community.
We sing for justice, freedom, and peace—songs new and old, some from around the world and others written right here. In performance, we wear sashes made of cloth from many lands to remind each other that we belong to a global family.
