Chaka ne Mbira

Creativity and innovation in advancing all that is timeless is a tribute to the resilience of cultures and cultural artifacts that stand the test of time. One such example is the mbira - an instrument belonging to the Shona people of Zimbabwe that has been played for thousands of years. This instrument is the point of reference for this creative.

We ask, how can traditions still with us today maintain their relevance in todays world? What tools can we use ? This creative aims to use innovative ideas and todays technology to answer questions such as these. While being developed initially at a micro level within the Zimbabwean mbira traditions, supported by the Zimbabwe Cultural Society of Alberta and a partnership with the University of Alberta's Community Service Learning initiative, the hope is that the scope of our work will expand as we move ahead.
