After its success on London's West End, South African Road Trip comes with a brand new show: ROOTS!
Join us on a unique and authentic journey through South Africa and immerse yourself in the rich traditions of the beautiful Xhosa culture. These fourteen musicians and dancers from Cape Town perform full of passion and energy as well as telling personal stories. About where they grew up, where they first heard music, who encouraged them to become the artists they are today and which South African traditions have been of great importance to them. A colourful performance full of musical memories straight from the heart.
Traditionals, played on authentic instruments, are interspersed with well-known songs such as Miriam Makeba's Pata Pata and songs by artists such as Brenda Fassie and Tracey Chapman. Music that, surprisingly, is also part of our roots.
ROOTS! excites the senses with rousing live music, stunning video décor and rhythmic African dance!
