DURBAN DRUMBEAT FESTIVAL 2006 (article first published : 2006-08-20)

The annual Durban Drumbeat Festival ,which is aimed at highlighting and showcasing local, national and proposed international drumming and percussion groups in order to generate interest in playing or appreciating percussive instruments as a music form in its own right, will take place on August 26 at the BAT Centre starting at 13h00 and continuing until late.

Among the acts for the festival are Inhlansi; the Interitmo Drummers; Mlilo – traditional and modern drumming, dance and vocals with Richard Ellis; Drumshack Massive; Matthew Ellis – Drum Kit; Young Basadzi; Garlands of Rhythm; Stylee Chaos! and Root & Wings Fire Performers.

Other activities include a percussion-themed art exhibition which will take place in the BAT Centre’s galleries. The exhibition will feature some of the most commonly used drums at the festival - with information on their use and origin. Various music and instrument outlets have been approached to take part in the display areas which will be located in various venues around the BAT Centre. There will also be rhythm poetry inspired by Communication.

Tickets R50 pp (R25 pp under 12’s) available from the BAT Centre’s reception and also at the door. Bookings and more information on 031 332 0451.
