We are as excited as we are happy and grateful to launch a project this month that we have been working towards for a long time:

Over the next few months we want to create video lessons for the entire repertoire of Matepe master musician Chaka Chawasarira, as well as his instrument building process, and make them available to a next generation of students in Zimbabwe and abroad.

Our project team: Othnell Mangoma Moyo (not in the picture, as he’s currently touring the US), and from left to right: Samora Kuda Nyaruwabvu, Stefan Franke, Chaka Chawasarira.

The project is funded by the Federal Foreign Office (Germany’s ministry of foreign affairs) and supported by the cultural department of the German Embassy in Harare.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the FFO and Mrs. Katrin Simon from the embassy!

If you want to support the project, spread the word! We’d love to see it in the media and are available for Zoom/WhatsApp interviews.
