Stimela: The Musical
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Named after a brand of gumboot, this terrific show is loosely linked by an old mans memories of his days in the mines, where many men were drawn from the townships. The dance routines and the songs tell of the miners back-breaking work, their longing for home and the way their songs and those gumboot dances eased the pain. The thigh-slapping, boot-stomping routines are backed by a three-piece band and accompanied by Ladysmith Black Mambazo style singers. It is funny, tender and energetic and the company work as hard to bring you the gold!
