Camp paGungwa

Kutsinhira Cultural Arts Center is pleased to announce the 14th annual Camp paGungwa ("by the ocean"), a four-day mbira intensive on the Oregon Coast. This year our honored guest and teacher will be Patience Munjeri. Camp will be held at our traditional ocean-side retreat in Florence, Oregon, on Labor Day weekend (Friday evening 9/1/2017 through early afternoon Monday, 9/4/2017).

With the Zimbabwean Music Festival taking a year off in 2017, Camp paGungwa provides an especially valuable opportunity to immerse yourself in the music and traditions of Zimbabwe.

Mbira will be taught and played from beginner through advanced levels, plus hosho, drumming, singing and dance. A complete workshop schedule is available upon request.

Camp paGungwa is held at a beachfront home north of Florence, Oregon, USA. Check-in is 7PM Friday Sept. 1; departure is 1PM on Monday Sept. 4. In addition to a full schedule of learning and playing Zimbabwean music, there will be communal living, three delicious meals per day, cultural presentations and enjoyment of the beach, dunes & forest just steps outside the door.

On-site housing is available on a first-come, first-served basis when the registration deposit is paid. Alternatively, commercial lodging, from funky to elegant, can be booked nearby in Florence, with meals taken at Camp.

Based on past experience, registration will fill quickly. The cost of Camp paGungwa includes all instruction, cultural presentations, meals, snacks and communal accommodations.

- Early-registration discount through June 30, 2017: $390 ($355 for Kutsinhira members).

- Regular rate starting July 1, 2017: $425 ($390 for Kutsinhira members).
