Singer and dancer Sbongiseni Duma takes families on a joyous, interactive musical journey to South Africa. “Bongi” and his group share unique features that make South African music so cool, including the use of vocal clicks, call and response, hand movements, and dance steps that will get everyone up out of their seats. When “Bongi” and a small ensemble of African djembedrums, percussion, acoustic guitar, and bass take the stage, they transport audiences to the KwaZulu-Natal province without having to even leave New York.
