Drumming

Home » Cultural » Drumming

The corridors are often filled with the energetic and vibrant sounds of Mamela (the very talented Jeppe Girls drumming group).”Mamela” means “listen”. The group makes their music with djembe, dun-dun, ken keni and sangban drums as well as cow bells and rhythm sticks. They compose some of their own rhythms but have also adopted traditional South African and West African pieces. The group performs at both school and external events.

The Mamela leader for 2018 is Nosipho Mathenjura and the vice is Thembela Khuzwayo.
