Festival of music, games and environmental education

June 17th, 2017 (Saturday at Bond Park)

Music performed by  Kutandara, expect to dance & enjoy!

kutandara

Kutandara fuses ancient African music traditions with indie-pop, rock, jazz, gospel, classical, and world folk influences. Their exuberant and hi-energy polyrhythmic performances manage to be innovative and deeply-rooted at the same time. Kutandara means to come together and have a good time, which is the group’s purpose as they exchange energy of music and movement with their audiences.
 
The band principally plays Shona music from the African nation of Zimbabwe. The music is polyrhythmic and played on marimbas, which resemble long, wooden xylophones. There are seven types of marimbas ranging from bass marimba to soprano and each musician learns to play them all. The band plays both traditional music as well as more contemporary pieces. It is uplifting, community music that often touches the soul. We think you’ll agree!

Kutandara is pleased to provide music for the Estes Park Fun Run & Festival , continuing a six year tradition.  If you would like more information about the band or the Kutandara Center, please visit the website kutandara.com/kutandara.
