The Staging of Inala

Inala is a scalable show which has played to standing ovations in intimate venues up to outdoor festivals, Opera house and arenas.  2014 & 2015 brought a sell-out run in London, a Royal Variety performance appearance, phenomenal tours of the UK’s premiere theatres and concert halls and an international premiere in Moscow.
2019 was a spectacular relaunch for  INALA with a very successful West End run, followed by shows at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, a performance at Hampton Court Palace for Prince Harry’s concert and finishing the year with a Royal Albert Hall performance on World Ballet day and Black History Month and a premiere tour of China.

“A fully deserved standing ovation following their amazing performance. INALA brings abundance of brilliance.” – Joel Campbell, The Voice 2019

The Sound of Inala

INALA marked the first time that Joseph Shabalala, the founder of the legendary South African choral group Ladysmith Black Mambazo, had co written new music with a female composer Ella Spira and their Album “Songs from INALA”  was awarded a Grammy nomination in 2016. In 2019 Sisters Grimm relaunched the show with Soweto Gospel choir bringing soaring female voices to the production for the first time.
