World famous acappella and dance group from Zimbabwe

World famous acappella and dance group from Zimbabwe 

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.  Black Umfolosi is a self-taught Acappella (Imbube) singing and traditional dance group,  specialising in imbube music, gumboot dance and Zulu dance.  Black Umfolosi has toured extensively nationally and internationally in Europe, USA, Canada, Australia and Asia

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 lea

“It was the best of all the festival, they have an incredible way to sing, to dance, a beautiful presence on the stage. Their simplicity, naturalness and cheerfulness was for us, at the end of the festival a beautiful present.”  Milan Festival

Their famous Gumboot Dances showcase the traditional styles and rituals of the South African mining regions and are a particular crowd pleaser.

I challenge you to NOT go home singing The Lion Sleeps Tonight!!!

If you love African music as we do – think  Ladysmith Black Mambazo –  we know you will love this group.
