Cultural Activities

Let your Cultural talents take over and Inspire the people

Interactive Drumming

Drums have been played in Africa for thousands of years. So what better way of exposing your clients to the rich enjoyment and fulfilling experience of African drumming, than by giving them each a hand crafted Djembe drum to play. Our various sessions are designed and led by a team of dynamic young facilitators who put emphasis on building spirit and team work in the group. The event is started with a cacophonous rumble to show the guests the chaotic possibilities of not working together. Only then do we build them level by level, until they are beating out thunderous African rhythms as a group. The interactive drum experience is the perfect way to add dimension to your conference opening, break away time or bush braai (barbecue).

Our session lasts for about an hour.

Interactive Gumboot Dancing

Gumboot Dancing is a hallmark of traditional South African mining culture; It originated in the gold mines of Johannesburg, deep down in the shafts. The miners used the sounds of stepping together, smacking their boots, clapping their hands and dancing together to create a gumboot dance rhythm to distract them from the long treacherous hours beneath the ground and to operate as a team, so where better to learn this than right here in the heart beat of the Mining industries. Interactive gumboot dancing unleashes energy to any event. We provide each person with a pair of gumboots and within a few minutes with our team’s help, the group will be grooving and stamping together.

Delegates to bring along their own socks.

Combination Drums & Gumboot

Your team will be divided into two separate groups. The sequence will be taught to the delegates. One group learning drumming the other the gumboot dancing. In the end they will work together as a whole, performing their own “industrial theatre”.

Feel The Beat!

Marimba Band

This 5-piece ensemble is a stunning way to keep guests entertained during a bush braai or gala dinner. The band consists of three professionally handmade Marimbas (traditional xylophones). These are made of wood and give an incredible “earthy” sound. Very African, very good. Accompanying the marimbas are two percussionists who provide the pulsating beats to which the band plays a range of African music. From traditional African melodies, Reggae, Jazz as well as some of our own unique compositions, this is a great way to experience Africa’s vibrant musical culture. The session lasts about one hour and is punctuated by song and drum performances. We can also split the session to allow for some variance in the program. By prior arrangement we can also increase the band size from five, to up to eight performers.

African Tribal Dancing

The power and majesty of African dance… Throughout the ages, dance has been one of the most fundamental expressions of African vibrancy and creativity. The reasons are simple; Dance uplifts and energizes the community. Dance invigorates and prepares the warriors for battle, and above all dance bridges the gap between the ancient and modern. It keeps the stories and legends alive for the generations yet to come. Our dance troupe is an eclectic mix of contemporary and traditional. We pride ourselves on developing and delivering on what is undoubtedly Africa’s finest heritage. The performers are local, dynamic young men and women who perform both their own Tswana dances as well as the more mainstream Zulu shows. Contemporary African dance is included as it gives our performers freedom to experiment and developed as artists. The troupe is between five and eight members strong. The spectacle is best complimented by our Marimba band but it works well as a standalone event i.e. welcome band, fringe or main performance.
