Are you looking for a unique way to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your loved one? Or are you single and ready to mingle with other music lovers?
If so, you might want to check out the Mbira Valentine’s Event, a night of music, romance, and cultural enchantment, hosted by Mbira Urban and Alliance Francais Harare.
The Mbira Valentine’s Event, which will take place on the 9th of February 2024 at Alliance Francais Harare, is set to be a dazzling fusion of passion and tradition, featuring the mesmerizing melodies of Zimbabwean mbira music.
The mbira, also known as the thumb piano, is a traditional musical instrument that has been played in Zimbabwe for centuries.
It produces a distinctive sound that is both soothing and uplifting and is often used as a medium of communication with ancestors and a celebration of love.
The event will showcase the talents of some of the best mbira artists in Zimbabwe, including Nasibo, Taffie Matiure, Tendex and Mazwi.
These artists will transport the audience to a world of rhythmic bliss and heartfelt emotions, as they perform songs that reflect the rich cultural heritage of Zimbabwe and the universal themes of love and romance.
The event will also feature a variety of cultural experiences, such as poetry, dance, and storytelling, that will complement the mbira music and create a magical atmosphere.
Event organiser Chioniso Tatenda Rushwaya said that the Mbira Valentine’s Event is not only for couples but also for singles who want to enjoy a night of beautiful music and meet new people.
“We are having our third edition of Mbira Valentine’s on the 9th of February. Mbira Valentine’s is not only for those who are dating married or in relationships, but also it is a time for those who are single to mix and mingle and listen to beautiful Mbira music. You don’t know, maybe someone might leave with the loves of their lives at the end of the show,” she said.
The Mbira Valentine’s Event is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to celebrate love, culture, and music, all in one magical evening.
It is made possible through the partnership between Mbira Urban and Alliance Francais Harare, two organisations that are committed to the preservation and promotion of cultural heritage
