Profile

Drumming has previously been a maledominated cultural activity but the Drum Café’s creation of Basadi Le Meropa in 2003, turned this stereotype upside down!

These ladies represent the strength, talent and optimism of African women. They provide a refreshing performance filled with original composition and choreography, colourful costumes,exhilarating drumming, melodic marimbas, upbeat vocals and a wide variety of dances including stick-fighting choreography, Afro-contemporary dance, Pantsula and Township Jive.

The show is unique in that it draws upon the individual experiences of women who are each performers in their own right. They are starting to branch out by playing other traditional instruments including the Mbira, Akadinda, Uhadi and Kudu Horn.

The ladies have toured the Netherlands for the Festival Mundial as well as Belgium. This year,they were one of the top feature performances for South African President Thabo Mbeki at the opening of Parliament. They have also received a standing ovation at the opening ceremony of the Women’s World Cup Cricket.
