“great township experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

The story of Black/White issues in South Africa will always be a bitter sweet drama well done by Amazink. The drive into the township for white international tourists is intimidating, the security guards looking after your car, are all erased when you enter the barred doors to the greeting of black people, and you realize colour is not the issue at all. A wonderful story of hardship and survival through music and dance. Well Done !!!!!

“Goosebumps”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

We bought the CD of the show.Still Goosebumps every time we listen to the Redemption song. What a impressive performance. And not only that song. You cannot sit still listening to the CD.
What a memorable evening. All the performers were great.
And also the African food was delicious.
Next time when we are in Stellenbosch we will absolutely go to the show again !!

One request: would you please be so kind to add to your website the lyrics of all the songs
Dank u wel, Khayamandi !

“AMAMAZING”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

The title says it all. I can only beg you to make the effort to go and watch this show. If you don't leave there a completely different person then there must be something wrong with you. I took 2 guests there for a show and even before it had finished they had insisted that we book the next one. I did and was not expecting to be so moved by the show 4 days later but if anything I was more moved by the vibe, enthusiasm and drive of the wonderful cast. You guys really rock and I will do anything I can to help spread the word.

“What a vibe!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

This was absolutely great! Maybe one of our best experiences whilst visiting South Africa. We really didn't think much of Franschhoek and we really wanted to get away from the white scene (which isn't very easy we found). Searching TA we found AmaZink, great people, great ambiance, great food, great music. What are you waiting for, just go!

“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

We (a family of Canadians) were invited by a group of local friends from Stellenbosch to see this dinner show and had no idea what to expect. We drove into Stellenbosch's Khayamandi township and entered the AmaZink building where we were immediately served drinks among a very international crowd. The dinner was very nice, typical township fare, we were told. Then the show began and we were surprised to see that our waiter was one of the performers. The show was outstanding, with exquisite voices and harmonies with dancing that was sheer explosive energy. Thanks to our friends for taking us to this exciting show! One may be tempted to visit the wineries in Stellenbosch and content oneself with good food and drink. But to do so would be to miss a real South African experience. AmaZink Live gave us a taste of the real dynamics of this country, with its mosaic of cultures who each have a fierce pride and abundant talent. These Xhosa performers were spell-binding and world-class and by the end of the show, the whole house was on its feet. Not to be missed!
