Wedding at Stoepsit, Still Bay

Here is another of my wedding gigs, this time with British guests.

The wedding couple asked me to facilitate an "African wedding" including drumming, traditional African Dancing and some local hip-hop artists.

In the second photo, you see the girls taking the ladies from the audience aside and teaching them a traditional African dance.

Our guys also took the
men to one side and taught them the traditional "Mandela Shuffle".
The audience then got a chance to play a djembe drum - for many the first time in their lives! They learnt the two basic notes and everyone had fun, from old to young!

The happy couple then participated in a romantic call- and answer rhythm originating from the Transkei, Eastern Cape, South Africa.

What a magical evening!!

Thank you for letting me participate in your special day.**
