I have always enjoyed the festive, fun Jomba festivals with their riot of colour, culture and activity.

 

This is filched straight off their Facebook page and gives you a good idea of what to expect:
“JOMBA! continues its collaboration with eThekwini Municipality to offer its second one-night only outdoor dance extravaganza JOMBA! City; this year at Beachfront Skate Park (next to Mini-town), JOMBA! City is curated by David Gouldie whose vision of opening up new spaces for dance, is explored in this glorious site-specific party on Friday 31 August starting at 6pm. Celebrating Durban’s beach front, surf, sea, skate-park, and the night of a full moon; come and listen to the sound of a cello against the rip of the wave, pick up a hip-hop beat as dancers move to the ancient rhythms of the tides. Breakdancers shift between light and video while a kathak storyteller spins into madness.
