Majuba can perform with a minimum of two dancers and two drummers upwards, depending on the situation and duration required.
Standard Length of Performance:
Usually up to an hour of background drumming plus a short cabaret set featuring dancing and singing.
“Loved the African Drummers – thought they looked the part in their African dress and the noise of those drums! They were just brilliant. Really gave the event some atmosphere and they were all very smiley and friendly. Would hire them again without any hesitation.”
