Afrovibes - The Sibikwa Arts African Indigenous Orchestra


DATES: 5th Oct 12 -6th Oct 12
TICKETS: £10.00, Family tickets |(for 4 people incl. up to 2 adults) : £25.00




The exuberant nine-piece Sibikwa Orchestra gives audiences a lively exchange of rhythms and beats - a great example of crossover music.

Their performances involve high levels of audience participation with everyone on their feet (often with an instrument in hand) as they take part in a feast for the senses, refreshing their musical tastebuds, and evoking the true spirit and ancestry of South Africa.

This award-winning orchestra is a celebration of the traditional and modern and their work travels from soothing subtleties of sound and movement to compelling township jazz and Afrobeat.

 

Members of the core orchestra play traditional instruments such as the Uhadi (African bow instruments), horns, drums, marimba, mbira and dinaka pipes. They are joined on stage for Afrovibes by three jazz musicians, collaborations exploring how original African compositions receive the quirky infusion of jazz styling.
