THEY'RE turning up the heat at the Everyman - and you could be part of the hot crowd!

Europe's largest traditional African dance and drumming company is due to pound it's way to the Cheltenham theatre later this month - and we have a pair of tickets to be won .

For two lucky runners up we have a Adzido (CORR) Pan African Dance Ensemble CD so even if you don't win tickets you can experience their exciting music in the comfort of your own home.

The dance and drumming experts are coming to the theatre for one night only - Thursday, March 29 - with their fizzing new production Chesa Chesa (pronounced Cheesa Cheesa).

Taking its title from the South African Sotho (CORR) word, meaning pure, hot, fiery and liberating, the show is a visual feast combining traditional and contemporary African dance with music, movement and colour.

Dances from Ghana, Mozambique, Botswana, Nigeria, Burkina Faso, Cote d'Ivoire, South Africa and Guinea are represented, accompanied by a wide range of instruments including drums, xylophone, rattles and bells.

Adzido (pronounced Ah-jee-doe - the Ghanian word for oak tree) have been touring the world for the past 15 years with a repertoire of ancestral dances and have earned a reputation for their uplifting performances and ability to make an audience to feel welcome.
