African Rhythms” is one of the Drum Cafe’s most exciting, informative and fresh shows.
Developed to complement the Drum Cafe Book, Traditional Music of South Africa, “African Rhythms” is a unique 40-minute show exposing you to some of South Africa’s richest traditional musical practices. Join the author of the book, Laurie Levine and a talented team of performers in celebrating South Africa’s traditional music, through a spirited talk and performance.
Traditional music in South Africa revolves around creating and sustaining a sense of community and belonging. In “African Rhythms, we highlight this concept through a multi-media presentation of the musical rituals and ceremonies of South Africa. The performers introduce you to some of the near-extinct musical instruments of the country and also showcase exciting neo-traditional crossover performances such as Kwela and Isicathamiya.
Remember to read about the Drum Cafe’s stunning selection of shows: “Shebeen Experience”, “Africa Now!”, “Jozi” and Drumstruck.
