Zimbabwe fundraiser brings world music show to Norwich
Children from Zimbabwe are set to benefit from a world music fundraiser that drew a diverse array of talent together to perform in Norwich.
This afternoon saw audiences enjoying a musical treat at The Octagon, in Colegate, as the Dumisani drumming group, from Stalham, performed alongside others including the Norwich-based Akabella choir.
Organised by the Mudeka Foundation, the show ran from 2 to 4pm, and was raising money for schools in the country.
Norfolk-based Zimbabwean performer Anna Mudeka plays a thumb piano called a mbira and helped organise the event. Her old school, called Rugare Primary School, and Warren Park D Primary School will be receiving money raised, which is expected to reach nearly �900.
She said: 'It went really well and was a great success, with a lot of people turning up.
