My next show wasn’t for a couple of hours so I wandered down Princes Street for some retail therapy before I arrived at The Assembly Hall for Drum Stuck.
This is the brainchild of the Drum Café’s Warren Lieberman and co-created with Kathy-Jo Wein.
Drum Struck originally premiered in Johannesburg, South Africa, in 2002 and has since become a phenomenon, touring the world with shows in New York, Japan, Australia, China and Vietnam.
Billed as the first interactive drum theatre experience, it has won over audiences with its exhilarating presentation of African beats and explosive energy.
This one-of-a-kind show provides every audience member with a drum to play along with the on stage performers.
There is a thinly veiled story about the Ubuntu Queen dying and we all need to help her live by drumming with the cast.
The story doesn’t matter as this is a fantastic experience for all the family. Everybody was drumming, singing and dancing by the end.
The vocal and percussive ability of the cast is amazing and it was a real feel good time.
