The Sacred Drummers from Reunion Island featuring N'Faly Kouyaté (Guinea) and Efrain Toro (Puerto Rico) will perform at the Alliance Française de Durban on October 5.

The group caused a sensation when they last performed in Durban at the Awesome Africa Festival, and now they are back as part of Ray Phiri’s all-star entourage within the South Africa – France Season.

N’Faly Kouyate was a key member of Peter Gabriel’s legendary Afro-Celt Sound System and his skill and elegance has earned him the title of “the Jimi Hendrix of the Kora”. Efrain Toro is recognized as one of the finest and most complete all round percussionists in the world.

The Sacred Drummers will appear on October 5 at 19h30. Alliance Française de Durban is situated at 22 Sutton Crescent (off Windermere Road) in Morningside. For more information contact 031 312 9582 or fax 031 312 2864 or email:
