On April 19, 2018, the first of two concerts of ancestral Zimbabwean music will feature traditional mbira music: drumming, marimba, dance and choral music. Audiences will enjoy the transformative sound of mbira music as it was played over one thousand years ago in traditional ceremonies in Zimbabwe.

The KTO Project is collaborating with Bay Area musicians and dancers from Zimbabwe to celebrate the music of the people – Chimurenga music – and to explore its roots in traditional mbira music played by the ancestral Shona people in Zimbabwe.
