Medleko Meropa is a fusion of different music and dance genres such as house, hip hop, Latin and Jazz. Its energetic drumming that uses Soulful music and Dance. Medleko works with young people to develop traditional African skills in dance, music and theatre.  The Band achieves an outstanding standard of performance, but is also aware of its mission to provide young, township based people with cultural awareness and life skills. The group originated in Tshwane, South Africa’s Capital city and draws young people from a number of townships in the area.  They conduct workshops and development programs, and their musical theatre performances use traditional African performance skills to explore contemporary issues in township life.  The company is well respected in South Africa; they work out of the national South African State Theatre. They have been invited to perform for the president, for Nelson Mandela’s birthday, and represented South Africa in Australia with Sounds Live Choir.
