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. In 2009 The Black Umfolosi 5 continue to present their spectacular songs and dances thrilling audiences worldwide with a NEW LINE-UP.

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

Why not indeed. Saw then at Dent FF last year, they were very good.

It looked like their tour bus was an old school minibus so if they are expensive, it's not going on luxury transport!

Pete.

Some years ago I was in a pub in Thirsk on a Thursday night for a sing and they were visiting as they had been touring schools doing performances. They came down and sang in the bar and joined in with the things that we sang. Really nice bunch of people as well as singing very well.

Irene Shettle pointed out to be that it might be an idea to give people a clue as to when this might be happening. Good thought, Irene......


It's on

Well, although I'm talented as far as ESP goes Vic, I did wonder how many others might be [chuckle] - glad to be of service!
