Zimfest weekend is almost upon us! To make up for the COVID-19 cancellation of the physical festival, we have scheduled online activities throughout the weekend. Please join us by registering (donate whatever you can afford!) through Zimfest Online for:
- July 31 – Tanga Pasi from Zimbabwe to Germany: Sinini and Pamela Ngwenya present a hybrid live/taped concert.
- August 1 – Mvenge Mvenge Dance Party with Zivanai Masango!
- August 2 – Mbira lesson with Musekiwa Chingodza/Dr. Jennifer Kyker by proxy. (Companion singing lesson to follow on Aug 9.)
We have a few more Zimfest Online presentations to schedule during the month of August, and there has been a request to change the time for these presentations from 1 PM to 5 PM PST. Please let us know in the comments section below whether or not that would work for you.
We had a great Conversation/Interview with Lucky Moyo last Saturday! The recording is available for free on the Zimfest YouTube channel as well as the Overview page. Those who wish to donate can do so on Lucky’s (UK) Facebook page. Alternatively, to support organizations like Bana BeNgwana Trust, you can donate to Kutsinhira’s Zimbabwe Community Development Program. ZCDP supports community development, health and educational efforts in Zimbabwe like BeNgwana Trust’s building and borehole projects.
Thank you for your support of Zimbabwean artists and development projects!
