ABOUT US

DUDUETSA is a lively, upbeat southern African marimba group, performing folk music from all over the southern African region. The group's set up typically includes African marimbas with drums and vocals. The instruments are all acoustic, so require no micing - making the set up very flexible. The group's members have all studied and performed alongside some of southern Africa's leading marimba composers and performing arts companies, and are all long standing performers and entertainers in African music, percussion, dance and song.

PERFORMANCE OPTIONS

  • Price from £950
    Duduetsa
    Band

    The set is all dependent on your requirements. Our instruments are fully acoustic so usually don't need any micing. The set we typically play is usually lively and upbeat African dance music with drumming and singing, but we can very easily adjust to play softly, and be more of a background entertainment act.
