Watch: Korean show choir take over a SPUR with incredible performance! djembe

This is what happened when a SPUR restaurant in South Africa gave a group of Korean diners (who were actually an incredible show choir ensemble) a Djembe drum.

 

The staff at a SPUR restaurant in South Africa gave a djembe drum to a group of diners, who just happened to be an incredible show choir and now the group of Koreans are going viral after breaking out into song.

A djembe is a rope-tuned skin-covered goblet drum played with bare hands, originally from West Africa. According to the Bambara people in Mali, the name of the djembe comes from the saying “Anke djé, anke bé” which translates to “everyone gather together in peace” and defines the drum’s purpose.

The show choir group proceeded to serenade the entire restaurant with an impromptu performance of “The Circle of Life” from The Lion King but the most amazing thing is that the performance is a ton of cultural influences.

A Korean show choir are sitting in a “native American” restaurant in the heart of South Africa singing an American song that features African influences lyrically and musically from a film set in Africa but is actually based off of an English play with some flavor from traditional Abramistic stories.

And the mix of cultural performance is totally gathering everyone together in peace!
