 Zagawa.....'bursts of light'

'Primal at it's most polished…Modern Primitive at it's best'
African drum dance and firePhat jungle beats set the pace for a breathtaking fusion of vivacious African inspired dance moves merged seamlessly with the exhilarating art of spinning fire. This feat of endurance and stamina has to be seen to be believed in a highly energizing interplay of rhythm and movement that commands attention. 
Also available with the accompaniment of intoxicating live African drummers, Zagawa is the perfect way to fully engage your guests, get the atmosphere pumped for a fabulous party, or host an exhilarating stage show that will leave you breathless! Tj Mahadhi, Miss Chemuka and these talented drummers are guaranteed to get pulses thumping and feet stomping in this energetic act!
All performers are also available to provide uplifting roving entertainment for your event. For a more interactive atmosphere, we can invite your guests to join us onstage for a fabulous boogie, or involve them with some highly enjoyable drumming workshops and dance workshops before or after the show.

Testimonials;
Zagawa @ cultural celebration, Millennium restaurant, Brunswick, May, 2009
Regarding the fire show performed by Tjoni at our cultural event. I'd like to thank Eccentrix and Tjoni for being so understanding for adhering to our cultural needs in terms of dress code. Despite the mishaps on the night on our behalf, from the wrong music being played to the performance not being on schedule, a great performance was still delivered. Due to the problems on the night, we had Tjoni performing to music she hadn't performed to before and having to change her choreography accordingly, ON THE SPOT. As an audience, these problems went unnoticed as it Tjoni made do with our restrictions and delivered an excellent performance which was greatly appreciated by all member of the audience.

The African Drum and fire show was so much fun, it was energetic and vibrant and i loved how it was always changing and exciting. The drummers were awesome and the fire twirling was really well choreographed. Thank you for making my 21st a night that i will remember for the rest of my life. - Leigh Zito, Client
