“If you feel like a celebratory evening out but would like to escape the Christmas rollercoaster for a couple of hours…drop in at the Tricycle. Forget Santa, forget panto puns and join an exuberant South African ensemble.” **** Whatsonstage.com
“Spice Drum Beat will make you laugh and sing. Whether you are American, British, South African or Irish, Ghoema’s infectious magic will make it a night and production to remember.” South Africa Times
“a feel-good Christmas show.” Metro
“Kramer & Petersen’s best yet…….this production is an all-round winner” Cape Times
Delving deep into Cape Town’s early slave history, when the Dutch first settled in South Africa, Spice Drum Beat transforms both old and recent Cape musical history into a highly entertaining and theatrical experience. Enjoy the beat of the spice drum in this vibrant fusion of original song by Kramer & Petersen and folk songs that evolved more than a hundred and fifty years ago in Cape Town.
