The group has been flying the Zimbabwean flag high in Austria and Czech Republic for the past six months.
“We have been getting a lot of Europeans citizens flooding our shows and this led to us being given a new deal which will see us going back to Austria,” said Nkululeko Dube, the IYASA Director.
“Our current tour which began six months ago ends next month. After two weeks break at home we are heading back to Europe as we were given a new deal that will see us performing for a month over there. What makes us happier is that we are being recognised in Europe where only the best are invited,” he said.
The tour follows another in Japan where the group recorded its first ever DVD album with Benjamin Kellner, which was well received internationally. IYASA was established in 2001 to support and promote the best interests of young musicians, dancers, actors and poets.
It has since expanded to be a resource centre for established and upcoming musicians, singers and dancers. Through workshops, projects, training, programmes and performances in and outside the country IYASA plays an integral role in the development and promotion of talent in music, dance, film, poetry and theatre.Post published in: Arts
