About the Event

In the wilds of Dartmoor, at full moon, enter the magic of sacred mbira music, connecting us to the spirits of our ancestors

This retreat will centre around a ceremonial mbira night with traditional Zimbabwean food, community prayers, and music, song and dance for the spirits into the night

In preparation, we will explore the traditional dances, music, songs and rhythms of the mbira, and open our embodied breathing beings to connect with the land, our ancestors and our heart prayers as a community

The mbira opens a sacred liminal space, a bridge drawing the seen and unseen worlds together in a way that has been happening in rural Zimbabwe for thousands of generations

This is real community dance, this is dance that matters to us, the dance of our lives!

Kennedy Chinyere is a musician, artist, singer & dancer from Zimbabwe.  Kennedy grew up in a traditional family and has been playing mbira in ceremonial spaces for over twenty years

Denise Rowe, is an internationally recognised dance & movement artist and mbira player with over fifteen years experience in 

facilitating safe spaces for powerful transformation
