On the Sunday afternoon of the Folk Rhythm and Life Festival 2014, they dragged their soggy selves and instruments through the rain to the main stage to play an afternoon set. As they began their set the clouds parted, the stage and crowd were bathed in sun. By about half way through the set, the curious and aerobics inspired dance moves of one particular audience member had caught on, and in a matter of minutes he was leading the entire crowd in synchronised work-out moves.
Afrobics Oz Style was born.
