Zee Guveya and the Heritage Surival Band are a group of exceptionally talented musicians from Zimbabwe hailing from the country’s capital Harare.  Their particular style of Afro-fusion draws on modern influences whilst upholding familiar traditional rhythms.  The band offers their audiences a compelling, insistent dance beat which weaves together hypnotic up-beat Zimbabwean music with the occasional reggae thrown in for good measure!

The one-day workshop will include an introduction to the cultural history of Zimbabwe, introduction to Djembe Drumming and Mbira Thumb piano playing as well as dance for those who are interested.
