Indigenous People (music and dance) Fri. 1st Sept, 8pm
Friday, September 1, 2017, 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm
Indigenous People is the collective name for the Kakatsitsi Master Drummers from the Ga tribe of Southern Ghana and The !Gubi Family of San ‘Bushmen’ from the Namibian Kalahari. Fresh from a main stage appearance at WOMAD this is a rare opportunity to see authentic Dance, Drumming and Song performed. The traditional drumming dance grooves from one of Africa’s leading percussion ensembles are combined with acoustic instruments and chants from the San people of the Kalahari desert in their healing trance dance ceremonies. These accompany a dance performance which fuses elements from the two participating traditions. Entrancing and enlightening… The Friday performance is not participatory and will focus on watching the drummers, dancers and singers perform, with narration, to explain the social and cultural context of the music, song and dance.
