Ruzivo welcomes their visiting Zimbabwean friends with a Thursday night concert at Upstage Restaurant on June 2, 2011. Ruzivo plays high-energy Afropop music inspired by Zimbabwean and South African traditional and contemporary tunes.

Joining Ruzivo onstage will be Jacob Mafulene and Martha Thom, two members of the critically acclaimed visiting group Mbira Dzemuninga. The husband and wife combo will share their deep and vibrant understanding of Zimbabwean rhythms through mbira, dance, drumming and singing. Mafulene and Thom will conduct a pre-show workshop beginning at 5:30.

5:30 - 7 pm is a traditional dance and drum workshop with Jacob Mafuleni and Martha Thom. It is $25. Jacob will teach the drumming rhythms. Martha will teach the dance. The two classes will come together to learn how to put the dance moves to the drums. Workshop participants will have time to learn both drum and dance. Please wear comfortable clothing and please bring your own drum to the workshop.

5:30 workshop $25,  7:30 show $8.
