Attendees and organizers of Camp Batidza will collaborate with Tacoma and Whidbey Island musicians to host a musical showcase filled with marimba, drumming, dance and singing.
The performance will close out the first annual Camp Batidza, an immersive Zimbabwean music and cultural camp for young adults. Camp Batidza is the first of its kind in the U.S. It was created with the mission to reinvigorate a musical tradition and understanding of Shona culture among a younger generation of musicians. Shona music originates from Zimbabwe and is known for its joyful, uplifting marimba and mbira ensemble rhythms.
The event is 7-10 p.m., Saturday, June 29, at the Bayview Hall, at 5642 Bayview Road.
The suggested donation is $12.
