Africa’s future voices unveiled

HARARE - The recent La Voix workshop offered a unique opportunity for young Zimbabwean singers to be part of a week-long technical voice workshop featuring established and aspiring singers from eight other African countries.

iary, from DRC and France respectively.
The five young Zimbabwean participants in this project all exhibited exceptional talent – Dudu Manhenga, Kudzai Sevenzo, Nyengeterai Zembe, Justin Guvaza and Courage Lazaro. The future of Zimbabwean music looks rich.
The other participants were Serges Kakudzi (DRC), Barbara Guantai (Kenya), Maria Nkhoma (Malawi), Amal El Nour (Sudan), Irene Namubiri and Julien Groult (Uganda) and Simon Kalondo (Zambia).
The musical programme, La Voix, which means The Voice, was meant to nurture and develop an identified group of young singers from across Africa with voice and performance skills. It was an initiative of a number of collaborative partners including the Embassy of France, Association Francaise d’Action Artistique (AFAA) and HIFA.
