Roots of Rhythm Show Group was established in 2008. Team members are all local residents from the rural areas in and around Acornhoek, who have been trained in singing, dancing, drumming and dramatic performance.
The Eco Academy is the host venue for the beautiful Shangaan village. The Academy is a safe and clean training centre providing eco and wildlife education to local and International students, focusing on anti poaching, conservation and lodge management. Conservation of our Heritage goes hand in hand with Conservation of Nature & our Environment.
Just 25 km from Hoedspruit, a visit to the Kruger National Park area is incomplete without a visit to Nyani Village & the Cultural Experience “Roots of Rhythm” Tribal show. In an informative and entertaining way, Roots of Rhythm performers provide visitors with a better understanding of the rich cultural background of the Limpopo Tribes, identifying the history and traditions of the indigenous people through costumes, dance styles and rhythms.
