South African Bush Fire Festival Takes Place In Swaziland

The Bushfire Festival, which takes place in Swaziland every year, was filled with a rhythmic atmosphere recently.

This year the festival was celebrating 10 years, and House on Fire was filled with more than 20,000 people.

More than 20 different groups and artists travelled all the way to the kingdom to entertain and bring joy to the thousands who attended the festival. The Klitsgras drumming group from Pretoria were among them.

It was their first time performing at The MTN BushFire in Swaziland and the reactions were all positive.

“We don’t get this much support  … in South Africa,”  said  Andries Bruyns, founder of Klitsgras

eNCA mobile journalist Karen Mwendera was there and produced the video above to bring the rhythmic drumming experience to you.
