Nhemamusasa North

We welcome you to join us at Nhemamusasa North 2019, a very special opportunity to gather together in community and immerse yourself in the music and culture of Zimbabwe.

We will once again be gathering at OUR Ecovillage on Vancouver Island, a sustainable learning centre and demonstration site about 50 minutes north of Victoria near Shawnigan Lake. There we will come together over six days to share in the deep and nourishing musical and cultural traditions of Zimbabwe.

Our 2019 Zimbabwean Guest Artists (subject to change) will include Alois Mutinhiri(mbira), Napoleon Jambwa (marimba, ngoma, dance, mbira, singing), Zivanai Masango (marimba, guitar, singing), Paul Mataruse (marimba, shona language), and Kurai Blessing Mubaiwa (marimba, mbira, singing, ngoma, hosho). Our North American teachers this year include Dana Moffett (marimba), Dean Samuel (marimba, gumboot dance), and Ted Wright (marimba, chipendani, mbira). Watch for additional teacher announcements in the coming weeks.
