Heritage Zimbabwe Culture Day

Heritage Zimbabwe Culture Day

African Marimba Music spent the day in Coventry at Heritage Zimbabwe Culture Day. We shared some marimba songs with the young children and had a general jam towards the end of the afternoon with some of the attendees who grew up playing the marimba in Zimbabwe. These are always the best parts of these days out - meeting people who haven't played or seen a marimba in many years, and being able to give them the opportunity to reunite with the instrument and the songs. 

In the evening we got the pleasure of performing an hour long set for the attendees at the culture day event, before joining Stella Chiweshe on the stage. We performed two of her songs with her - Cha Chimurenga and Huya Uzoona. 

Here are a few pictures and videos from the day.
