*INVOKING MEMORY ~ MBIRA EVENT*
Saturday November 14, at 8pm (doors open at 7)
ARTEMIS GALLERY 4390 Gallant Ave, Deep Cove, N. Van,
Featuring ERICA AZIM playing mbira and sharing songs and culture of Zimbabwe.
Mbira is a sacred music which connects the living with those who have departed from the physical plane – thus this event in connection with this time of remembrance. This is an mbira concert and space will be provided to be creative. Create an image, write poetry, knit, …or sing song, dance or listen deeply. Bring an image of a departed loved one if you feel you want to share memory in your experience. Erica Azim will play mbira and lead singing.
All donations will go to the MBIRA Musicians Fund, and will be distributed to over 200 Zimbabwean traditional musicians who earn less than $100 in 2014. Suggested donation $20 and upward.
