Meet the Team

Run by Julie Blundell and based in Cape Town, the Rhythm Workshop was started in 2000 by Julie and her brother Jonny who later left the team.   Julie regularly joins forces with various musicians, including  James van Minnen - percussionist extraordinaire - and Vuyo Katsha from Gugulethu, one of the country's top mbira players who also teaches and performs on various traditional African instruments and also works with African dance.   All these talented musicians have been playing music and performing since they were young. Julie books other musicians and facilitators according to the needs of any particular workshop.
