Thanking our donors: Kambuyu and Kubatana!

As we enter our Fall Fundraising Campaign, Tariro would like to thank the many communities that have supported us this past year.  Most recently, we received donations from two performing ensembles in very different parts of the United States. Both of their members, however, share a love for the music and culture of Zimbabwe!

The first group, Kubatana Marimba, is based in Albuquerque, NM. For several years now, Kubatana has joined together with the awesome Wagogo Banda, a group that blends musical influences from Zimbabwe, Mexico, and elsewhere, in order to host a benefit concert for Tariro, raising close to $1,000 for us each year.

The second group, Kambuyu Marimba, is one of the few Zimbabwean marimba groups performing east of the Rockies!  Based in Syracuse, NY, Kambuyu has been bringing the vibrant dance music of Zimbabwe to audiences in Western New York for almost a decade.  Recently, we were thrilled to receive a check in the mail as a donation from Kambuyu!

As we work toward raising $40,000 in order to continue our work educating and empowering Zimbabwean girls in 2013, we appreciate the ongoing support of many individuals, organizations, and performing groups, including Kubatana and Kambuyu.  And if you have not yet done so, please consider making a contribution to Tariro today.  Your support is critical to our success!
