Open to All
Zimbabwe has a long and rich musical history that encompasses songs sung at important community events, traditional mbira music, jit, chimurenga and even modern Zim Dancehall. Cecilia distills all of these into a fun and sometimes emotionally powerful community singing workshop suitable for all levels. With some songs accompanied by the delicate sounds of the mbira, emotion is never far away, and when Cecilia picks up her hosho you know it will be time to blow the roof off.
Cecilia has sung songs and played music as far back as she remembers. She holds these workshops because of the connections formed among communities when they sing together communally. She loves to share this part of Zimbabwean culture with people. Cecilia is a veteran Doris teacher and has been running workshops for far longer than it’s polite to admit to!
