Imbube UK is a unique organisation formed of the most talented and professional African artists and musicians based in the United Kingdom.
Their main aim is to promote African heritage and culture to all ages, and host or support a variety of activities and events that connect people.
They provide South African language classes, workshops in schools and educational institutions, music and dance, bead making, traditional clothing and story telling. They also produce festivals of South African Music. They work hand in hand with different charity organisations for children in need in the UK, South Africa and the World.
The group has a full membered choir of 20 singers – which has toured and performed all over the UK and abroad, singing in different African languages, and offering a cappella, classical and traditional gospel songs with a seven-piece band – as well as energetic Zulu dancing and drumming that brings excitement and tells a story.
They appear at cultural venues, corporate events, award ceremonies, wedding celebrations, and funerals and have been involved in many concerts, television recordings and studio sessions.
“Just wanted to drop you a note to say how impressed everyone was with Imbube. Made a lot of the South Africans (including myself) very homesick and quite tearful, actually. They were wonderful and really got the party going by including people. I am glad I only used them for the reception in the end because it really was more suitable to that environment. Thanks again.” Pamela
“Just wanted to pass on our heartfelt thanks to Luyanda and team. They were really outstanding and we loved every minute. More to the point … my mother would have loved it and I certainly don’t think Dunwich church has heard such a joyous music during a funeral. They were also such a lovely bunch of people and I wish I had had more time to speak to them. I hope they found their way home OK and felt they were sufficiently looked after. Thanks to you too.” Molly
“I witnessed a splendid performance at the SA Chamber of Commerce Summer Drinks. Many thanks. Best regards, Claudio”
“A message from one Lennox to another! I just wanted to thank you so much for your patience and kindness yesterday…we got there in the end with the song arrangement. Thanks to your Bambelela section, the roof was pretty much lifted off the guildhall rafters! What a pleasure and privilege to work with you and your wonderful choir…sending love and appreciation from Annie..(The other L!) Xxx”
