Mbira Music Concert

October 31, 2020 @ 15:00 - 17:00

Gabriel Makamanzi The Africa Centre

As part of our Black History month celebrations, we are delighted to present a live Mbira music concert featuring a live performance by the incredible Gabriel Makamanzi. The Mbira is a traditional music instrument that is native to the Shona people of Zimbabwe. While the instrument has now had some mainstream exposure, it is still traditionally considered a spiritual instrument that should be handled with respect and only be played by specially appointed individuals.

Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 restrictions, we can only deliver this event online so it will be streaming live from our Facebook Page. We will also film the event to be packaged and distributed more widely afterward.

Gabriel or ‘Sekuru Makamanzi’ as he is affectionately known, will be accompanied by some members of his Afresh Band to deliver what promises to be a thrilling and authentic traditional African music experience. You don’t want to miss it!
