The series of concerts is carrying the title “Gospel Train” and will feature a series of gospel songs rooted in the Negro Spiritual. “How differently did the suppressed slaves in the New World express their feelings, missery and faith. The african rythms of their birth ground, the miserable circumstances in which they barely survived, the hope they found in their Christian faith: all these elements became the basis for the Negro Spiritual”, according to the website of the Vlaams Radio Koor.
