Zulu Warriors''Glebe Centre, Crich

There will be more than a touch of Africa at the Glebe Field Centre in Crich on Sunday, April 14, in the latest Live & Local event to be organised at the venue.

Crich Glebe Field Centre is one of 40 Derbyshire venues promoting Live & Local shows this spring, bringing top quality professional acts to the heart of the community, at affordable prices.

After the sell-out success of Kel Elliott’s jazz concert there in February, Crich is delighted to welcome Zulu Tradition to The Glebe on April 14.

Doors open at 7pm and there is a licensed bar.

Nominated for the 2013 South African Achievers Awards, Zulu Tradition is a theatre company, a band, a dance troupe and a group of story tellers, all rolled into one.

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

Imagine a youthful, mixed-gender Ladysmith Black Mambazo with high kicks (and they are high!).

Zulu Tradition delivers a heady mix of glorious African harmonies combined with high-energy dance, all backed by pulsating drum rhythms.

Staged in colourful authentic costumes, this thrillingly athletic show encompasses a wide range of musical styles to present a spectacle of rich African culture.

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 of this exciting spiritual culture, and this show will appeal to audiences aged six and over.
