Product details

Celebration tries to capture something of the spirit of festive times in Zimbabwe where many occasions are marked with music and dancing. People come from far and wide to participate, and as each group arrives, they perform their own dance while others stand back and urge them on. As the music continues, eventually everyone dances together.
Celebration takes as its starting point a traditional Zimbabwean melody. This can be heard first as fragments in the opening section and in its complete form in the final section of the piece.
Celebration is written as a tribute to the future, when Robert Mugabe is gone and the Zimbabwean people are once again free to live their lives in peace.
