Black Umfolosi returns
Mar 15, 2018 7:30 pm
Black Umbolosi is coming all the way from Zimbabwe to bring a delightful family-friendly evening performance to the stage at Key City Theatre. If you’re into marvellous harmonies, spine-tingling gospel singing and thrilling gumboot dancing, mark the date on your calendar and be sure to be here!
Black Umfolosi were formed in 1982 by school friends in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, who named themselves after the Umfolozi Omnyama River in South Africa – to where their ancestors can be traced. The Black Umfolosi 5 continue to present their spectacular songs and dances thrilling audiences worldwide with a NEW LINE-UP.
Their performances are energy driven and completely engaging, mixing a great gentleness of spirit and song with an exuberance in dance. Their trademark harmonies mixed with intricate rhythms, clicking and clapping are highlighted during their brilliantly choreographed shows with a full range of movements from subtle to vibrant stomping and leaping! Their famous Gumboot Dances showcase the traditional styles and rituals of the South African mining regions and are a particular crowd pleaser.
