Last updated: 13 February 2023
There are African drumming experiences, and then there’s Drumstruck. South Africa’s first authentic drumming-theatre experience has returned from Broadway to play limited shows in Cape Town at a most spectacular venue.
Whether you’re a music lover, a culture seeker or simply love a good party, you won’t want to miss Drumstruck at Silvermist Wine Estate this summer. The Cape Town shows are accompanied by an interactive wine tasting and are delighting audiences of all ages, from all walks of life.
The shows run daily from Tuesdays to Sundays. Image: Drumstruck
GLOBALLY-ACCLAIMED AFRICAN DRUMMING SHOW
Drumstruck is a scaled-down version of the international production, which has been described as “STOMP meets The Lion King,” but it is no less spellbinding.
The show takes audiences on a journey through the musical heritage of southern Africa – from the first drum to the newest high-tech electronic instruments. The cast of Drumstruck use elements of storytelling, learning, showmanship and interactivity to get audiences out of their seats and beating their own djembe drum and singing along with the show.
