Luminosa: Zimbe!

Zimbe! By Alexander L’Estrange
& other music inspired by Africa
With Band and Massed adult and youth Choirs
Conductor: Rebekah Abbott

Zimbe! is a sequence of choral arrangements of traditional songs from all over Africa in a jazz style. This is a work which forges links between adult choirs and massed children’s choirs, placing singing at the heart of the community as it always has been in Africa. And, since jazz grew out of blues which itself sprang from the mouths of African people, what better accompaniment for these songs than a jazz quintet? Zimbe! is at times touching and moving, at other times funky and grooving and all of the time incredibly uplifting both for performers and audiences alike.

Tickets £15 and £15.
