Bollywood Extravaganza in Ladysmith

It was great fun performing with the uber-talented Tansen Nepaul Showband as well as the well loved singer Hussein Vally and other great singers and comedians who had the audience in stitches and run by the brilliant Hindvani Radio DJ and MC of the night, Vee Gani.

With a stunning stage and pyrotechnics it was definitely a night to remember.

Both functions were at the gorgeous Thaba Eco Hotel and Spa, one of our favourite function venues to perform in.

Here are some pics of the performances:

Oriental Fire filming for Mela

We were in the middle of rehearsals when we got a call from Mela, the Eastern Lifestyle show on SABC2 who wanted to cover our filming a promo video for some directors in Bollywood with the one and only Kumaran Naidu.

The always stunning Zakeeya Patel and the Mela crew filmed some of our performances and interviewed us on our costume designs and the background and future of Oriental Fire.

We got to film our showreel in the lovely Katz School of dance and include the incredible Bboys Jamal and Darryl who we can't wait to perform with in an upcoming show. (Details coming soon...)

Gandhi Walk Show

We were honoured to perform for the annual Gandhi Walk in Lenasia which thousands of people participate in every year.

The Gandhi Walk Committee celebrated 30 years of consecutive Gandhi Walks, it also remembers the centenary of Mahatma Gandhi’s departure from South Africa a hundred years ago.

This year the charities supported through this event were: Saaberie Chisty Ambulance Services, LICO and Ikageng Relief Centre for the Aged.

Our Junior dancers, the Little Desi Girls performed and were definitely crowd favourites with their amazing energy and Hindi lip synching.

We performed our new Bollywood medley with silk voi ending which was a huge hit!

Hula Birthday Show

 We performed for a lovely Hula themed double birthday party for a mother and son.

Our island show included a balancing flower basket dance, a traditional Hawaiian dance, sega inspired fire dance and the always popular limbo with all the guests.

Hula is definitely a great theme for events as just the addition of flower leis and a few grass skirts makes you feel like you went on a mini holiday.

It can be a simple do or an all out event with full beach decor and upbeat island music (which we can provide).

Keeping summer going! ;)
