"Their singing is a marvelous blend of rhythm, melody and harmony welded together with enormous complexity, but ending up with a sound that is acting simplicity? - fROOTS Magazine, England

Back for their first Canadian theatre tour in four years, Black Umfolosi is Zimbabwe's greatest ambassador, performing music inspired by the traditional song and dance of their native southern Africa with a beauty and enthusiasm that is unrivalled. 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! Specializing in imbube music, gumboot dance and Zulu dance, Black Umfolosi has toured extensively nationally and internationally through Europe, USA, Canada, Australia and Asia.
