MIdlands Zulu dancers get ready to enthral audiences in Scotland

2014-07-30 00:00

A MIDLANDS traditional dance troupe are set to wow audiences at the Edinburgh Military Tattoo.

The Imbalenhle troupe perform weekly at Hartford House Hotel, Summerhill Stud in Mooi River.

They are one of the top traditional dance troupes in South Africa, and represented the country at the world championships in Tokyo and Hong Kong.

They will make their debut in Scotland on August 3 under the name Ngobamakhosi — the regiment that struck fear into the hearts of the British soldiers at the Battle of Isandlwana in 1879.

The troupe will perform the ritual dance the Zulu impis undertook at the royal kraal on the eve of their departure for major military expeditions.
