The Salvation Choir is a Congolese Rumba band from Congo and Tanzania based in Kansas City, Missouri.
Led by choir masters Jeune Premier Silambien and his father, Pastor John Wilondja, the choir writes, records, and performs original gospel songs in Swahili. The rest of the choir is comprised of aunties, uncles, sisters, brothers, cousins, and neighbors.
The Salvation Choir has performed in cities across the Midwest and are scheduled to perform at Boulevardia (Kansas City's largest outdoor music festival) in June 2022.
Their music is currently featured in a national advertising campaign on BBC's Channel 4 and by the internationally renown record company Dust-to-Digital.
The Salvation Choir also performs each Sunday in the gymnasium at the Messiah Lutheran Church in Independence, Missouri. Church services start at 10 AM and all are welcome. The services are in Swahili but a choir member will help translate in English.
