For over thirty years Mango Groove with lead singer Claire Johnston have successfully managed to instigate music lovers worldwide to bouts of unintended and spontaneous foot tapping, steering wheel drumming and even full out dance manoeuvers when subjected to the band’s distinctive kwela and Merabi influenced beats, goosebump causing penny whistle solos and Claire Johnston’s powerful voice which together have become the soundtrack to the Rainbow Nations feeling of Ubuntu, peace and goodwill.

Mango Groove will be forever remembered when they took to the stage in 1994 as part of Nelson Mandela's Inauguration Concert where they received three encores.  

Now, for one night only, Claire Johnston and Mango Groove invite you to join them for a concert not to be missed! For more information and to book your tickets contact The Global Challenge directly or book via The Global Challenge website. Tickets are also available at Hermanus High School or at the Hermanus Tourism offices.

The Global Challenge #BangTheDrum campaign gives golfers a platform to raise money for charity by doing what they love and do best which is playing golf. Together with the help of sponsors and organisers, the players are setting out to reach their goal of raising R300,000 for charity.

The professionals are appealing to their global sporting fans to show their support by making a small financial pledge in support of their favourite player. All the players involved have generously donated their time and there will be grand total of absolutely no prize money for the winning team as they are playing for the honor of representing their hemisphere.

The Full Tummy Fund

This year #BangTheDrum has named The Full Tummy Fund, Learn to Earn, Just Care and Overstrand Persons with disabilities as the beneficiaries of the funds raised by the professionals.

For more information about how you can #BangTheDrum and help the professionals raise money for charity, contact The Global Challenge directly.

The easiest way to make a pledge on behalf of your favourite player is to log on to The Global Challenge website and follow the links.

Players comment:

"What a privilege to be able to raise money for those who may be in need of that small bit of help that could change their lives forever by just doing what we love doing - PLAYING GOLF!  Thank you to everyone that has made a pledge to date, no matter how big or small. Your support makes every shot we make on the fairways of Hermanus during The Global Challenge so very worthwhile. Please take up our challenge and make your pledge for #BangTheDrum so that we as players can give back.”​
