Imagine a youthful, mixed gender, Ladysmith Black Mambazo with high kicks. Zulu Tradition is a company of genuine young Zulu singers and dancers who deliver a heady mix of African harmonies (traditional songs as well as Afro-Gospel) and high-energy, athletic dance – all traditionally costumed and with drum-rhythms. Their stage shows are exciting, enthralling and hugely entertaining and they attract enthusiastic audiences.
This vibrant company of Zulus reaches back into the past to preserves ancient skills while stretching forwards to contemporary Africa. Direct from Durban in KwaZulu Natal, individual members of ZULU have performed in the UK and abroad, including special events at Buckingham Palace for Prince Charles, at the South African High Commission as well as at major festivals across the UK. They hit national TV in both the UK and in South Africa when performing for the first officially sanctioned Mandela Day at the British Museum.
