SHOWCASING THE RICH AFRICAN VOCAL TALENT IN NORFOLK
Zimbabwean and Norfolk based singer and all-round polymath, Anna Mudeka, has been commissioned by Hostry Festival to lead the African Choir of Norfolk. The choir is aimed at those of African, Caribbean and Black British heritage to join and learn songs from all four corners of the African continent. We are inviting people of African heritage from across the county to lend their vocal talents and showcase the rich cultural heritage of the 54 nations.
Through a diverse repertoire curated by artistic director, Anna the choir will include songs, movement, drumming, ululation to give it a real African experience. Our inspiration comes from imbube singing made famous by groups such as Lady Smith Black Mambazo, South Africa, Black Umfolosi, Zimbabwe and The Yoruba Women Choir, Nigeria.
