Tambai Community Projects
Community is at the heart of Tambai Community Projects fundraising through events, workshops and projects in Norfolk towns, villages and cities. Such events aim to promote culture through music, food, crafts and workshops. Since 2001 Tambai Community Projects have organised and run projects including, ‘When Shaka Zulu met Hip Hop’, with young Black youth within Norfolk and music and dance workshops.
A new African Choir has launched in Norfolk and is looking for singers of all abilities to take part. The Hostry Festival African Choir will be led by Zimbabwean-British musician Ann Mudeka. This brand new project from the Hostry Festival aims to celebrate those from African descent living in Norfolk. The choir will perform at a Gala Concert at the Hostry Festival in October 2020. The Hostry Festival takes place every October in Norwich Cathedral and celebrates art, music and theatre from across the county.
Stash Kikbride, who produces the festival with Peter Barrow, said: “We have wanted to include choral singing in the festival for a number of years but, as with all our projects, we look for the original, the untapped, the undiscovered gems waiting to be unearthed. In Norfolk there is a wealth of African talent, but we felt there was space for a bespoke African Choir whose remit is to bring that amazing vibe to a wider audience.”
Anna Mudeka said: “I am very passionate about Africa and all her energy which I don’t doubt will show through when we take to the stage.”
