Mama Africa offers a vibrant and authentic African experience that is made all the more magical through music. At 8 each evening a live Marimba band takes to the stage and rocks the restaurant with a variety of musical styling til late in the night.
There are three resident bands, each performing two nights a week. The core of each band are the marimbas, large wooden percussion instruments that resemble xylophones. Originally from Zimbabwe, the distinctive sounds of the marimba are now recognisable across the African music landscape. Each band has incorporated their own special ingredient to the mix, ranging from a brass section to an operatic tenor. No matter which night you choose to attend, you are guaranteed a unique and memorably entertaining outing.
