“A truly authentic experience”
Reviewed 12 September 2013

I was so pleased to hear that the new Nyani Cultural Village opened today at Eco Academy. Just one more reason to visit if you're in the Hoedspruit area! We had such a great time on our recent visit. Roots of Rhythm is amazing! Such talented and spirited youth!
The traditional meal afterwards was superb. I highly recommend trying every dish and washing it all down with Savanna cider! It was a real highlight of our trip.

Reviewed 31 August 2013

This show will mesmerize you. It is the core of Africa in a story. There is something about this show that takes you back to 'your roots of rhythm'. A MUST SEE!

“A must see show for every age group”
Reviewed 30 August 2013

Many African shows have toured through London, with the standard of this show is up there with all of them. What makes this show stand out and excel above all of those shows is it's originality, passion, energy and staying true to its traditional core. The singing and drumming are not only of the highest standard, but 100% live, giving the audience a very real and organic African experience without having to Westernise it. Make sure to take your cameras.

“Well done Roots of Rhythm!”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

We were very lucky to experience this special show on a recent visit to the Hoedspruit area. The show was energetic, vibrant, entertaining and educational and a special opportunity to learn more about traditional culture through song and dance. We also enjoyed the delicious traditional lunch, in a beautiful setting. We would highly recommend this experience for visitors to South Africa and to those living in the area, as well.

Hope to come back sometime soon!

We were invited for the opening of Roots of Rhythm and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of this cultural dance group telling the story of the various tribes in Limpopo.
