Each group, with its distinct style, contributes to the storyline that shows the importance of united action

The year 2019 has been declared as the year for ‘united action to grow South Africa’. To bring this dream of unity, hope and renewed energy to fruition, the youth of our country must take centre stage and play an active role. So this year, the Eastern Cape Indigenous Music and Dance Ensemble presents a fresh, vibrant and youthful combination of music and indigenous dances that can only be found in the Eastern Cape. The traditional instruments of the province, among the least known in the country, will be reintroduced as well.

AbaThembu, amaBhaca, amaKhoi, abeSotho, amaMpondo, amaXhosa, the Indians and the Afrikaners are brought together in this production to show the richness and diversity of not only the Eastern Cape province, but of South Africa as a whole.

Equal and up to the challenge, each group take turns in this showcase, backed by harmonious vocals and music from an array of traditional instruments.
