AFRICAN ADVENTURE – An interactive musical adventure for the whole family!
Friday 5 January

King Street Flinders
BYO chair or blanket
An interactive musical adventure for the whole family!
Schools and families are invited to join dynamic and interactive rhythm adventures led by musician, storyteller and entertainer, Valanga Khoza.
Valanga Khoza left South Africa in 1976, exiled along with many other young people because of their struggle against apartheid or racism. The music and stories he has since created reflects the places he has been and the people he has touched throughout his journey across the world as a refugee, finally settling in Australia.
Valanga charms his audiences with humour and wit, telling stories that are embellished by beautiful music from many traditional instruments such as the kalimba, marimba and shijoro (jaw harp) as well as irresistible rhythms from the guitar and percussion.
The finale of this joyous performance will feature a massed choir of local children led by Valanga and Andrea Khoza. They will have everyone singing, moving and grooving!
Everyone is welcome – please contact Merryn at firstname.lastname@example.org if your school or family would like to be involved.
