The Spirit of Togetherness tour was started back in 2000 with the inaugural show taking place at the Victory Theatre. The production was then moved to London in the following year where it captivated UK audiences. Ever since then, the performing arts company has toured for more than a decade, performing in over thirty countries. Their touring acts have now grown to become one of the most sought out dance and musical performances across the globe. The forthcoming event is expected to bring forth a variety of music and dance styles from the South African region. The versatility will be shown via tribal rhythms, jazz tunes from Sophiatown, gumboot dance techniques, inspirational Gospel acts and pounding beats of Kwaito music.
Africa Umoja was founded by Todd and Thembi Nyandeni in 1982 after their contracts with IPI NTOMBI expired. Choreographing new dance routines with a two member cast, Todd and Thembi took South Africa by storm. They initially performed a variety of dances to the sounds of a South African band named Juluka. As success and fame made its way to the duo’s lives, they decided to name their dance group, Pals of America. The next few years saw both Todd and Thembi working separate paths in order to generate finances for their own project. Todd made her way into the music industry by joining an eighties band called Chess, while Thembi started working on television as a soap opera celebrity. They were soon able to establish a strong presence in the media. Thembi went onto gather numerous awards while Todd was approached by Hostix Mabusa, a popular South African musician to provide background vocals. Upon Thembi’s and Todd’s return from the mainstream media, they decided to change the project’s name to BAOBAB. The name was kept with inspiration from fellow artist, Hugh Masekela. BAOBOB started performing internationally and started making a name and a strong following throughout US and Europe. With the career boost, Thembi and Todd decided to give their act a name that would represent what they were trying to achieve in its original form. Hence, Umoja came into existence. Literally translating to "spirit of togetherness", the duo has been dedicated to promoting the indigenous South African culture in the Western world.
Such devotion has won Umoja several prestigious awards including the 2005 Planet Africa Award from the Heritage category, SAMA Award of 2005, 2004 Performing Arts Canada Award and FNB Vita Award in 2001. The duo was also nominated for the Woman of the Year Award by Planet Africa Awards in 2002 and 2005. Africa Umoja has also received positive responses from critic publications and organizations. Some of these institutions include Daily Telegraph London, the Globe and Mail Canada, National Post Canada, The Times, the Northern Echo London and South China Morning Post. Reviews have accredited the duo for creating jaw-dropping spectacles that set the world’s stage on fire. Todd and Thembi have also been appreciated as embarking on a musical pilgrimage that reveals their country’s treasures.
