Black Umfolosi were formed in 1982 by school friends in Bulawayo,Zimbabwe, who named themselves after the Umfolozi Omnyama River inSouth Africa-to where their ancestors can be traced.Their performances are energy driven and completely engaging, mixing a great gentleness of spirit and song with an exuberance in dance. Their trade mark 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!

Their famous Gumboot Dances showcase the traditional styles and rituals of the South African mining regions and are a particular crowd pleaser.

“Marvellous harmonies, spine-tingling gospel singing and bare-torsoed, hard-hatted gumboot dancing” – GLASGOW HERALD
