Zimfest Online and more!

Dear Zimfest community,

We hope you are faring well as the country slowly emerges from lockdown. We have a lot to report:

  • Announcing Zimfest Online workshops for the month of June, taught by experienced Zimfest teachers seen on the 2020 Overview page. Mark your calendars and come back in the next few days to register for one, two or all three! 
  • We have been inspired by, and Zimfest owes everything to, many dedicated folks for whom volunteerism runs in the family.  Check  out our new feature in honor of some of them,  Zimfest is Family
  • Thursday May 21: the Google Doodle celebrates mbira!  And here’s a video about how they made the doodle: https://youtu.be/BNPSb4_c5_s. There are several prominent mbira players here – recognize our old friend Matemai?

Stay safe,
Claire (and the)
Zimfest Online Engagement Task Force
