World-renowned a cappella and dance group Black Umfolosi come to The Spring, Havant, this evening as part of Black History Month.

The group from Zimbabwe perform music inspired by the traditional song and dance of their native southern Africa.

Their famous Gumboot Dances showcase the traditional styles and rituals of the South African mining regions and are a particular crowd pleaser.

The group’s harmonies are mixed with intricate rhythms, clicking and clapping.
