Coming to the Zimbabwe Music Festival in Corvallis, Oregon? If so, make sure to stop by Tariro’s booth in the Zimfest marketplace! At our booth, you can view a photo exhibit from our “kids with cameras” workshop with our students in Zimbabwe, and speak with volunteers about Tariro’s work. You can also pick up one of our great, reusable “chicco” shopping bags featuring artisan embroidery work by our students. In addition, two exciting CDs will be offered for sale at our table. These include a compilation of field recordings from Tariro’s drum and dance group, in addition to the great collection of new music from Zimbabwe, “Zimbabwe Today.”
Finally, don’t miss Tariro founder Jennifer Kyker’s slideshow and discussion of Tariro’s work in Zimbabwe, offered during the Saturday session of Zimfest at 1pm. Space is still available in this discussion, at a cost of only $7.50! In addition to discussing her work with Tariro, Jennifer will also teach a song featured on the album of Tariro’s drum and dance group. Please come join us at this special workshop!
