Review from Malaika Tawasufi

I left at intermission. Since the end of the aprtheid era, many of the South African groups have lost the zeal that made them exciting to see.

Review from Cynthia R.

This was truly a unique experience. The harmonic sounds produced by this fabulous group gave me goose bumps. If the sound wasn't enough, the fun energetic choreography was enough to keep you wondering how they do it.
