Creative Peaks presents Millicent Chapanda.
Millicent is a Zimbabwean cultural artist,traditional mbira player, percussionist, singer, dancer and storyteller. Her music is nourished by Zimbabwean traditional ceremonials where vibrant spiritual and secular music is a key part of bringing people together in devotion, praise, reflection and celebration.Join her for an incisive,participatory and inclusive gathering of mbira expressions; a celebration of Shona culture that calls on the ancestral spirits, rising through the transcendental cascading sound of the mbira and the pull of the voice to the outer worlds.
The event is free but a donation of £5 is suggested. Events often finish with a jam session so with luck it will be long evening.
Creative Peaks is an arts and music organisation, joining the dots between sound, words, image, movement and the natural world, with an emphasis on improvisation, experimentation and collaboration.
Our base is the Watts Russell Arms, an ancient stone-built venue in Hopedale, just 8 miles from Ashbourne.
