Event description

The Mbira Dzavadzimu ("voice of the ancestors", or "mbira of the ancestral spirits") is an instrument that originated with the Shona people of Zimbabwe. In its conception it was regarded as a sacred technology utilised in ceremonial contexts, offering a medium through which the human and ancestral realms could communicate. Though the context of Mbira playing has changed through the passage of time, when played thoughtfully and in accordance with the musical tradition from whence it came it holds still the power to heal and invoke a meditative mood through its distinctive and unusual tonal arrangements.

We invite you to relax out on the wetlands with traditional songs of ancient times. Following the music, we will conclude the evening with chai and community time. Children are welcome. All proceeds from this event will be donated to the Mbira Musicians Fund and go towards supporting traditional custodians in Zimbabwe.
