What people are saying

African Shoes: The Musical

I must congratulate the whole group for such an amazing performance of AFRICAN SHOES, THE MUSICAL. As a drama teacher in Ottawa, Canada, I can relate to the hard work and dedication needed to stage such a production. I was equally impressed by the acting, the singing, the music, the dancing and the stage directing. Following that memorable night (which is part of my top 5 memories of my 30 day trip to southern Africa), I spent 6 days in Livingstone telling anyone who would listen that they MUST see the show. Good luck on all future projects for LIPAF.   Pierre, Ottawa

Very highly recommended

“African Shoes” is a must see for anyone who has come to Livingstone in search of the culture. It is a vibrant and colourful musical based on the story of a young Toka Leya high school student who faces the realities of becoming guardian of his family while struggling to complete his education. This all-too-familiar modern-day Zambian story is set against a backdrop of rich and exciting songs, dances, stories and ceremonies of the Toka Leya people – the people of the Falls.

Livingstone Performing Arts Foundation (LiPAF) are a registered NGO so all of the profits from the shows go to support employment in the arts and sponsorship of many important programs in health, education, sports, and poverty reduction – yet another reason to go and see “African Shoes”.
