Featuring Erica Azim playing mbira and sharing the songs and
culture of Zimbabwe

Mbira is a sacred music which connects the living with those who have departed the physical plane, and therefore a timely offering at this season of remembrance.
This is an mbira concert PLUS:
Space to make art (bring art supplies if you have some), write poetry, knit, sing songs, dance, or simply listen deeply. 
Bring a small image of a departed loved one, if you wish.
Erica Azim will play mbira and lead singing. 
You can hear examples of mbira music at  www.mbira.org.
All donations will go to the MBIRA Musicians Fund, and will be distributed to over 200 Zimbabwean traditional musicians (who earn less than $100 a year)
