The Anna Mudeka Band will be celebrating their new album 'Dendende' with concerts, a BBC interview and a lecture in the coming months. Travelling to Peterschurch near Leominster with the support of local touring company Arts Alive, Creative Arts East and their respective community promotors, Anna will be playing with her six-piece band and letting loose Zimbabwean Mbira energy in rural Hereford, Essex, North Suffolk and Norfolk. Arts La'Olam is promoting the concerts including one at our very favourite venue Old Hall Community in East Bergholt, just down the road, we hope to see you at one of the concerts which promise Zimbabwean Mbira-driven rhythms, conga beat and six-string bass, music to dance to packed with melodies and uplifting songs in Swahili, Hindi and Shona. We are very excited to tell you that Anna has also been invited to interview on BBC World Service, and will be delivering an informal lecture on the musical traditions of Zimbabwe for Southburgh Festival of World Music neighbours in Cranworth Jubilee Hall. Of course the superb album 'Dendende' recorded and produced by John Vigar at Tontena Music will be available to buy at all the events.
