What the media says:
Sowetan - Time Out (21 April 2006): "Limpopo - The Musical strikes chord.
The beauty of the people of Limpopo and their cultural diversity is detailed in the show
Limpopo - The Musical, which premiered at Polokwane Library Gardens theatre recently.
It is world-glass, home grown entertainment. The cast and crew number 30 people, including a live band.
Frankly, Limpopo - The Musical is a masterpiece and a must watch show".
Capricorn Voice (19-21 April 2006): "Limpopo The Musical, a show that took Polokwane by storm
during its launch is set for stardom. The show will definitely put Limpopo on the map".
The Speaker (12 - 26 April 2006): "From the moment the musical began, strong recollection of an
experience in earlier years came to mind when watching the musical 'Ipi Tombi', and since then no musical
has spurred that same exhilaration, until now. Apart from being informative in sketching the bountless
treasures and endless beauty of the North, author and director Abel Kunutu deftly mingles humour and
narration with music and movement".
African Face (15 April 2006): "Library Gardens, Polokwane came alive recently when Limpopo The Musical
launched at the venue".
Polokwane Observer (13-14 April 2006): "For the first time ever, Limpopo theatre has brought forth a
musical production that makes the long wait for something spectacular seem worth it. Bringing across the many
attributes of our province, the production simply titled "Limpopo The Musical", informs on the richness of our
soil with many natural treasures like minerals, the harvest reaped from Limpopo's earth and the story of her
people who carry with them inherited ancestral lessons that tell of working together for the benefit of all mankind".
Limpopo Informant (19 April 2006): "The stage settingand lighting is of high standard, with the live band
providing hypnotic rhythm to go with the traditional African drums. The colourful costumes worn by the actors and
dancers blended in well with the lighting and background scenery. Traditional and modern dancing, combined with live
music and drumming provide a lively interlude between the poetry, serious and often humourous dialogue among the main
characters during the play.
Limpopo News (April/May 2006): "At the premiering of Limpopo The Musical, it was very clear that a great show
piece about Limpopo is set for greater heights. The musical uses drama, poetry, music, humour, dance (both modern and
traditional) to tell stories about Limpopo Province. The musical celebrates the natural wonders found in the province
such as Modimolle, Makgoebaskloof, Moria mountains, forests, rivers and baobab trees".
