A pulsating musical celebration of South African song and dance. Read More >

Umoja is a pulsating musical celebration of South African song and dance. From the potent rhythms of tribal music to the intricate steps of gumboot dancing, the jazz of Sophiatown, the joy of gospel and the pounding energy of contemporary kwaito.

Umoja, meaning ‘togetherness’ in Zulu, unites 30 singers, dancers, drummers, marimba players and musicians who represent the best of South Africa’s young performers, many of whom come from severely disadvantaged township backgrounds.

The show enjoyed two runs in the West End after its premiere in 2000 and has gone on to be seen by over four million people worldwide since then.

Umoja was originally created by Todd Twala and Thembi Nyandeni as a way of reminding a new generation of South Africans of their heritage, UMOJA has gone on to win critical plaudits and collect multiple awards over the last decade.
