TriVo | Kurai Mubaiwa A Benefit for the Stephen Lewis Foundation
Sunday 03 November 2019, 08:00pm - 10:30pm
Mel Lehan Hall at St. James 3214 West 10th Ave
All proceeds from this concert will go to the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign of the Stephen Lewis Foundation, supporting grandmothers ("Gogos" in Zulu) raising a generation of children orphaned by the AIDS pandemic.
The evening includes the always-inspiring vocal harmonies of TriVo (Brian Tate, Dawn Pemberton and Karla Mundy); a dynamic and versatile vocal trio that brings to life music from many cultures and traditions around the globe. From the music of West Africa to Southern Bluegrass, Bach to Bebop, Cuban chants to Gospel shouts.
Kurai Blessing Mubaiwa was born in the village of Mutimbanyoka, Zimbabwe. With an exceptional interest as a young child he began playing mbira at the age of six. Kurai immigrated to Vancouver in 2002 where he began his Canadian musical journey.
As a solo act, Kurai also tours the world performing and teaching, singing, marimba and mbira at festivals as WOMAD, ZimFest and Montreal Jazz Festival.
