CAPITOLA — Draped in colorful attire and performing a blend of western popular music and songs from Africa and South America, the Matsiko World Orphans Choir thrilled students at New Brighton Middle School during a mid-day set on Wednesday.

“It was definitely cool,” said seventh-grader Madi Collins. “I think everybody really appreciated it. I loved the costumes and it was cool to hear the African music.”

Another seventh-grader, Ace Pedrasa, said he had never seen anything like it before.

“It was good,” he said. “They danced a lot and I liked their outfits. I could tell some of the students were happy they were there.”

Eighth-grader Noella Mendoza said, “I think they were pretty unique. It was a different experience, something I’ve never seen or heard before. I was excited to hear this. The dresses were really beautiful.”

This was the fourth time the choir has visited the Capitola school and is part of a week-long stay in the county, marked with performances at Grind Out Hunger, St. Joseph’s Catholic Community, Mountain Elementary School and Soquel Elementary School.
