|LIVE MBIRA CONCERT To round off our Black History month celebrations, we are delighted to present a Mbira music concert featuring a live performance by the incredible Gabriel ‘Sekuru’ Makamanzi on Sat 31 October at 3 pm. The Mbira is a traditional music instrument that is native to the Shona people of Zimbabwe. While the instrument has now had some mainstream exposure, it is still traditionally considered a spiritual instrument that should be handled with respect, only to be played by specially appointed individuals. |
The event will be streamed live from the centre Facebook Page and we will also film and package it to be distributed more widely afterward. Gabriel or ‘Sekuru Makamanzi’ as he is affectionately known, will be accompanied by members of his Afresh Band to deliver what promises to be a thrilling and authentic traditional African music experience.
