All Levels Zimbabwean Music Day Camp with Musekiwa Chingodza - 2018

All are invited to join Musekiwa, Marilyn Mohr, and other Zimbabwean music lovers for a three day camp beginning Wednesday, August 15.

Musekiwa will teach mbira, hosho, and singing, with cultural background for what is taught. Campers can add their input to curriculum choice. Drum and dance will be included if there is interest.

As Cosmas Magaya is expected to arrive in Eugene on August 16, we think it is very likely that he will be able to stop in at the Friday session! Campers will be among the first to greet him on his first Eugene visit since 2014.

Mbira, drums and hosho will be available for loan if needed.
