OLLI Presents – 1968 Around the World – Seeking a Middle Path
Window on Williams – Zambezi Dance Party – Feb 2019
The Williams College Department of Music and the Dance Department present Club Zambezi Dance Party! Led by Artist-in-Residence in African Music Performance Tendai Muparutsa, this group of young performers promises to heat up the dance floor in the midst of the winter. Club Zambezi Dance Party combines a unique musical collaboration with irresistible dance beats. Founded in 1992, Zambezi was originally inspired by traditional Zimbabwean marimba bands. The musicians of Zambezi perform on specially designed and custom made marimbas — the Zambezi group has an even wider range than its African marimba-band cousins. Zambezi’s hybrid instruments are capable of playing a huge variety of music including traditional and contemporary dance music. There is no band or set of instruments like these anywhere else in the world.
