Sibikwa offers you the opportunity to explore the wondrous rhythms of our amazing continent with an interactive drumming experience par excellence.
Sibikwa is celebrating Africa Month in the best way possible. We are offering you the opportunity to explore the wondrous rhythms of our amazing continent with an interactive drumming experience par excellence on Sunday 8 May from 09h30 to 15h30
Traditionally, the drum was the heartbeat of most African communities and has been an intrinsic part of African life for countless generations, an ancient instrument used to celebrate all the aspects of life. On the other side, drums are all about communication and making music, two essential characteristics of community life. Enough reason to join us and get immersed in Live in the Beat which offers workshops for aspirant and more experienced drummers, a call and response session, body percussion and more, all led by master drummers such as Volley Nchabeleng, Thokozani Nsibande and The Drumming Guys.
Also on the menu is an African drums & dance workshop by world-renowned choreographer Oscar Buthelezi.
Late afternoon will see all our participants taking to the stage to show off their body percussion, African dance and Sepedi drumming learnt during the day! Just pure, uninhibited, joyous ‘making music’ and dancing to the sound of the African drum and its infectious, primal beat and rhythms!
Come to Sibikwa and Live in the Beat! African drumming has taken the world by storm… inciting passion, inspiration and keeping the old ways alive and relevant; after all a beat is the first thing we hear in life.
