7:30 PM to 9:00 PM: Free and open to the public Information: jcunning@fau.edu or 561-297-2208We are pleased to offer an evening of musicalmagic, Saturday, September 20, 2014, beginning at 7:30 PM, in the University Theater.Master musician Fradreck Mujuru, joined by Erica Azim, will sing and play the healing musicof the mbira, which has been used for over 1,000 years by the Shona people of Zimbabwe asa means of communication between the living and their ancestors.Fradreck Mujuru, born into the largest extended family of Zimbabwean musicians, hasplayed the mbira since he was eight years old. He is internationally renowned as a mastermusician and teacher, and continues to participate in Shona ceremonies in his home country.Fradreck is also considered to be the greatest mbira maker alive, and his hand-madeinstruments are living representations of Shona culture on every continent of the planet.“Fradreck Mujuru plays the same songs’ that have been used to heal the sick, give adviceto the living, call the ancestors to earth, from time immemorial.”Erica Azim, the founder and director of MBIRA, is America's leading proponent of Shonatradition and musical culture. A Californian with more than forty years of performance andfieldwork experience, she has taught the appreciation of the mbira to thousands viaworkshops, music camps, commercial recordings, and international tours with mbira masters.Mbira dzavadzimu (mbira of the ancestral spirits), the premier traditional instrument of theShona people, has been played for religious rituals, in the royal courts, and socially for over1,000 years. Its construction consists of twenty-two to twenty-eight metal tongue-like keysmounted on a hardwood soundboard, which is placed inside a large (gourd) resonator.Plucking the keys alternately with both thumbs and the index finger of the right hand, playerscreate complex interlocking cyclic patterns, while simultaneously spinning-off endlessstreams of hypnotic variations. The mbira repertoire consists of hundreds of pieces, some700 years old, which have been passed down from generation to generation by oral tradition.At mapira ceremonies, ancestral spirits are summoned by the “sound” of their favorite songs.MBIRA is a non-profit organization dedicated to education, and the preservation of traditionalShona mbira music and culture, in Zimbabwe and worldwide. Money raised by instrumentand recording sales, performances, and from donations goes directly to support traditionalmusicians in Zimbabwe. (MBIRA has paid over $500,000 to mbira makers since 1998).http://mbira.org/mujuru&azimpromo2014.html Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:'Table Normal'; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-priority:99; mso-style-parent:''; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:'Times New Roman','serif';}
