Theatre and music lovers are invited to experience rich African culture in a lively and colourful show coming to Derbyshire.

On Sunday, April 14, The Crich Glebe Field Centre is hosting a visit by Zulu Tradition which is a theatre company, a band, a dance troupe and a group of story tellers, all rolled into one.

The group delivers a heady mix of glorious African harmonies combined with high-energy dance; all backed by pulsating drum rhythms.

Staged in colourful authentic costumes, the cast will take you on a journey to experience Maskandi (traditional Zulu music), afro-jazz and traditional Zulu songs and psalms. The

cast uses various genres of dance, music and dramatisation to tell their tales.

Zulu Tradition was nominated for the 2013 South African Achievers Awards.

Individual members have performed in the West End and for audiences which have included Nelson Mandela, Desmond Tutu and the Queen.

Zulu Tradition is suitable for spectators aged six years and over.

The show is brought to Crich by Live & Local and is one of 40 Derbyshire venues promoting the organisation’s shows. Live & Local specialise in bringing top quality professional acts to the heart of the community at affordable prices.
