Cederberg Tea House celebrates one year on Queen Anne this Sunday
Posted on June 17th, 2014 by Laura Fonda
To celebrate, Cederberg will be serving its signature South African baked goods and drinks, plus Gumboot dancers will perform at 1pm.
Here’s Cederberg’s description of Gumboot Dancers:
“Gumboot dancing originated in southern African gold mines where workers were chained together and not allowed to speak. They devised a means of communication by stomping their Wellington boots (which were called gumboots), slapping them, and rattling their chains. It also served as a form of entertainment when drumming was outlawed by the authorities; the workers expressed rhythm and music through the Gumboot Dance.”
Stop by on Sunday to wish Cederberg a happy anniversary and enjoy the celebration! And, if you forgot to catch the shop on Evening Magazine earlier this evening, click the image below for the feature on Cederberg:
