Black Umfolosi is a self taught Acappella (Imbube) singing and traditional dance group that was formed in 1982 by the then school age members who wanted to develop themselves and contribute to their community. They specialise in imbube music, gumboot dance and Zulu dance.

Their singing is a marvellous blend of rhythm, melody and harmony welded together with enormous complexity, but ending up with a sound that is acting simplicity F ROOTS

Marvellous harmonies, spine-tingling gospel singing and bare-torsoed, hard-hatted gumboot dancing GLASGOW HERALD
