Durban audiences are in for a right royal treat with the opening of one of South Africa's most successful musicals, the internationally acclaimed Africa Umoja, at iZulu Theatre at Sibaya Casino & Entertainment Kingdom on November 1.

After touring more than 26 countries, Africa Umoja: The Spirit of Togetherness - the tale of South Africa, its people and their song - returns to our shores.

Africa Umoja was created by Todd Twala and Thembi Nyandeni, who met in the 1970s while auditioning for Ipi Ntombi. The result is a show by 35 dancers, singers, and a five-piece band.

Travelling on the beats of drums, from the dusty streets of Soweto to the world's biggest stages, Africa Umoja tells the tale of South African music, from the earliest rhythms to kwaito.

Africa Umoja features internationally acclaimed choreography, exquisitely designed costumes and energy that audiences have found delightful.

The show ends on January 13. Book through 031-580-5555 or at Computicket.
