    Township Jive

    English lyrics
    I think its about time that we danced and we moved it
    Feel the vibes of the way through the movement
    Brothers and sisters move to the groove
    Feel the energy it feels so smooth
    Pick up the pace now, no time to waste now
    Take centre stage, put a smile on your face now
    Black or White, European or Caucasian
    Whatever the race the complexity is changing
    Get on your feet and dance as a nation
    Listen to the beat and feel the vibrations
    Its the anthem so put all your hands in
    Work as a team, let me hear you all chanting
    From your nation to the next man's nation
    Its an international celebration

    I can feel it in the air, I can sense the revolution
    A solution for political pollution
    Stop the hate stop the fight what ya provin
    No confusion so lets start movin
    Yeah ah hands in the air
    Wave em round like ya just don't care
    Join the team its a family affair
    No debating cause that what we declare
    The Township Jive
    I'm feeling alive
    Feel the rhythm that will take you on a ride
    Bring in the love let the hate slide by
    Positivity allows the happiness to rise high
    Higher than the sky
    See it in your soul, see it in your eyes
    Say
    Brothers and sisters move to the groove
    Feel the energy it feels so . . . smooth

    Swahili (Tanzania) and Chewa (Malawi) lyrics translated

    This is basically life stories told through through proverbs. Its up to the listener to interpret in their own way and their life experiences

    The sweetness of a berry fruit is evidenced by an abundant of ants within
    = Character can not be defined by external looks but perhaps through behaviour . . .

    A monkeys choice to grab two fruits at one time ended on his fall to the ground
    = It's futile to do too many things at one time as is bound to fail . . .

    Slowly slowly you fill the till
    = Patience in life has its rewards

    There is nothing that has no end
    = Good times or bad times, there is possibly an end to that . . .

    There is no secret once its between two people
    = A secret is not a secret once shared between two people . . .

    Strong words do not break bones
    = the equivalent of words do not hurt, stones do !

    It is s summary of life experiences told through real life stories.

    MOTHER AFRICA präsentiert: „Khayelitsha – My home“

    Von Helsinki über London bis New York wurde die Show „Khayelitsha – my home“ bejubelt, kam die Erfolgsshow nun in einer komplett neuen Inszenierung nach Rastatt. Die spektakulären Themenshows von MOTHER AFRICA sind wie eine Reise durch den Kontinent, auf der es um großartige Unterhaltung und artistische Höchstleistungen geht – aber auch darum, die kulturelle Vielfalt Afrikas zu zeigen und den Besuchern ein Stück afrikanisches Lebensgefühl näher zu bringen.

    Seit bald zwölf Jahren geht MOTHER AFRICA mit spektakulären Themenshows sowie ausschließlich afrikanischen Künstlern auf Tourneen – und ist dabei von Australien über Europa bis in die USA erfolgreich. Das 2006 von Winston Ruddle und Hubert Schober ins Leben gerufene Projekt ist dabei mehr als „nur“ Zirkusshow: Als einzige afrikanische Zirkusproduktion bietet MOTHER AFRICA seit über zehn Jahren Künstlern des „schwarzen Kontinents“ durchgängig und nachhaltig die Möglichkeit, sich auf internationaler Ebene zu präsentieren. Weit über einhundert Talenten hat die Produktion bislang die Tore für eine weltweite Karriere geöffnet.
