Drumstruck at Silvermist wine farm

Musicians welcome guests

The Cape Jewish Chronicle was privileged to receive a set of tickets from Warren Lieberman, the  producer and co-creator of the African music show, Drumstruck, currently on at Silvermist Organic Wine Estate in Constantia. The tickets were won by Miranda Bloch in a competition on our social media pages.

Miranda invited Di Dos Santos to join her at the show. Here’s what Di had to say about their memorable experience of the show:  

We had a  wonderful experience during a visit to the Silvermist Wine Estate for wine tasting and Drumstruck! The African-themed setting and the warm welcome from the staff in African garb created a unique and immersive atmosphere.

Enjoying wine tasting on a patio with a mountain backdrop and scenic landscape was a delightful experience. The natural beauty of the surroundings enhanced the overall enjoyment of the wines.

Meeting Winemaker/Owner Gregory Louw and hearing about his passion for winemaking was an added bonus. It’s always a great experience when you can interact with someone who is not only knowledgeable but also enthusiastic about their craft.

Overall, we had a memorable and enjoyable outing, combining the pleasures of wine tasting with the cultural richness of the Drumstruck performance. It’s a great way to appreciate both the local wine and the arts in a beautiful setting.

Drumstruck is indeed associated with Drum Cafe, a company that specialises in interactive drumming experiences and entertainment. Drum Cafe was founded in South Africa by Warren Lieberman in the 1990s and has since grown to become a global phenomenon.

The performances are not only entertaining but also educational, as they often include explanations of the background and cultural significance of African percussion instruments like drums, as well as string and wind instruments.

Drum Cafe’s professional local artists, who are typically skilled drummers and percussionists, have travelled around the world to bring the joy of drumming and African music to diverse audiences. They engage participants in drumming sessions, teaching them basic rhythms and providing an immersive experience that promotes teamwork, unity, and cultural appreciation.

Drum Cafe and its associated programmes like Drumstruck offer a unique blend of entertainment and education, using the power of rhythm and music to connect people and create memorable experiences.

A fabulous variety of wines, teas and entertainment equals a super evening.

A braai is also on offer after the show with Marimba drumming.
