23 September – 3 October 2009
Gumbination is excited to present their newest and most unique show to date, MANTSWE, in this year’s Melbourne Fringe Festival season. Meaning ‘voices’ in the South African language of Sotho, MANTSWE is across over, an Acapella spectacular that will leave audiences gasping for more.
Imagine an all female group singing Negro spirituals, vocal jazz, choral and African Traditional all in one pot. Wonderful harmonies, a mixture of simple melodies with challenging rhythmic structures keeps the energy flowing through the songs. This music is original, earthy, imaginative and fun to listen to. Come and listen as this acoustic group takes you to a place of tranquillity.
MANTSWE is a raw, simple yet thought provoking show that will leave you breathless and wanting more.
