Culture carnival blends music, food and fun


Thrills and chills filled the air at one of the best carnivals in the land, as thousands celebrated Culture Week at the event's new location, Queensdale Sports Club.

Glittering lights, exciting bands and a wide assortment of foods made the culture jamboree an unforgettable experience, and one at which top performers Alick Macheso and Tongai Moyo brought the house down.The show, put together by the National Arts Council and the Barbara Nyika Mbira Academy, had an impressive line-up of 20 musicians and some fantastic group performances.

The show boasted leading performers such as Tanga WekwaSando, Dino Mudondo, and both the Mbira and Mawungirara Enharira, among many other groups.Attendance was good, despite the chilly weather, and the bands and mbira ensembles wowed the crowd with their stuff, helped by a high-quality sound system.The show also featured a cultural exhibition, featuring traditional cuisine, attire and herbal medicines in line with the theme Culture for Survival.Security was tight, which was great for guests and less so for pickpockets, cellphone snatchers and car thieves.And there could be more good news to come. Barbara Nyika said this was just one of the main events that her management had lined up for revellers.
