River of Mbira
Friday 23rd October, 9 - 10.30pm
We are flooded with her, basking in her, poured through by her, blessed by her.
She is our life-blood, our memory, our teacher
In rural Zimbabwe she visits only sometimes, and we're going to play some mbira to call to her,
To call to the rains, that the crops might grow and the people might eat.
In honour of the lives lost and the traditions dishonoured
And in honour of the beauty of this ancient music that still comes to us saying
‘I can hold you in this'
And the grief of the world can be softened and healed by this music,
If we let her in, if we let our hearts open, if we are willing to love
