3:30 – 4:20 Performance Set 2

4:20 – 5:00 Light Potluck and Social, Open Jam

The schedule includes two performance sets by 8 groups with our annual meeting in between. Don’t miss the meeting as we will be sharing news of our Zimbabwean teachers and friends, progress we’ve made on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, philanthropic support of projects and organizations doing good work in Zimbabwe, and other organizational accomplishments.

This year the potluck will be lighter fare (think finger foods) at the end of the performances. Please bring something to share, food or drink, and stay awhile to socialize and participate in the open jam.

Given the limited parking, we ask you to park south of the school on the side streets.

NOTE: We are asking everyone to be masked while inside during the event.

We look forward to gathering with you soon.


Sekuru Magaya Memorial Recording Available Now

We at Kutsinhira Cultural Arts Center continue to mourn the passing of the great mbira player Sekuru Cosmas Magaya, our long-time teacher and friend, who died on July 10, 2020, after contracting COVID-19. An international Zoom memorial was held on October 10. Many family members, including his grand children, close friends, hosts, and mbira students spoke and played the mbira in his honor. For those unable to attend, we have made available a link to the recorded memorial. We hope you’ll be inspired to remember Sekuru Magaya’s legacy and to uphold his way of teaching, learning and living.

Watch the recorded memorial here.
