After a series of successful performances on London's West End, South African Road Trip brings Roots! to the Netherlands! In this new show you'll go on a unique journey through South Africa, to immerse yourself in the traditions of the rich Xhosa culture. Full of passion and energy the fourteen musicians and dancers of South African Road Trip will tell you their personal stories. Stories about where they grew up, where they first heard music and which South African traditions have been of great significance to them. Traditional songs on authentic instruments alternate with well-known songs by artists such as Miriam Makeba, Tracey Chapman and Brenda Fassie. Prepare for an authentic South African experience with beautiful videos, rhythmic dancing and exciting live music! 

Roots! is performed in English.
