Basadi Le Meropa
Basadi Le Meropa is a group of powerful young South African women, who tell the incredible stories of their lives through drums, dance, marimba and song. Basadi provide a refreshing performance filled with traditional favourites, original composition and choreography, colourful costumes, exhilarating drumming, melodic marimbas, upbeat vocals and a wide variety of dances. Drumming has previously been a male-dominated cultural activity, but the creation of Basadi Le Meropa in 2003 turned this stereotype upside down.
Representing the strength, talent and optimism of African women, Basadi provide a dynamic performance. For 2008 Basadi present an expanded line up with Nomsa Hadebe as lead singer and Tiny Modise on drum kit. Basadi are wonderful as a feature performance or as background entertainment.
