Between untold stories of the Kalahari desert and hypnotic melodies of the kalimba, Afrovival submerges us into melodic tunes that echoe far reaching villages and streets in Africa. Combined with an original and contemporary play on voice, story, dance and score, the Afrovival experience entices audiences feet to move to an infectious beat that uplifts and connects.

Afrovival are purveyors of resplendently easy-going music. Given its roots in African folk musics, it’s highly percussive. However, it adopts a more relaxing pace – more Sunday afternoon by the pool than insistent on high energy movement.
