Title: TWIIMBILANE STUDIO update
Post by: Peter Kuthan / AZFA on March 05 2007
 The Radio Drama project, working with some of the members of the drama club started in January 2007. The purpose of the project is to teach the members how to write a script for radio drama, how to record and produce a radio drama.

The editing of the second song for the artist who is a teacher at Musenampongo Primary School was completed. Also the studio continues hosting some local artistic practising sessions.

KANKOLIMBA - The long awaited Kankolimba was supposed to be completed by the end of January 2007. However, owing to shortage of materials the item is still pending. Kankolimba is an instrument made up of two instruments namely the Kankobela and Marimba.

Its launch is scheduled to take place in April 2007.

Digital Songlines - Australia

Digital Songlines is a project to develop protocols, methodologies, and toolkits to facilitate the collection and sharing of Indigenous cultural heritage knowledge, practices and languages in Australia. It involves the development of a 3-D digital environment that integrates story, art, and cultural icons in an effort to present knowledge as nonlinear and multilayered stories as they were told (and sung). The project explores the effective recording, content management, and virtual reality delivery of Indigenous cultural knowledge in ways that are culturally sensitive and that engage Indigenous custodians, leaders and communities. The toolkit (a platform-independent software developed in a number of formats) can be customised according to community wishes, educational needs, and other requirements...

Title: STUDIO RECIEVES MORE EQUIPMENT
Post by: sengamozm on May 15 2007
The studio recently recieved some equipment that will go a long way in boosting the activities of the studio. The equipment recieved is:-

electric guitar
small amplifier
digital tuner

This donation brings to two, the guitars that the studio has in the form of a lead and rhythm guitar.

This equipment is already being put to use by local musicians as at the recent visit by AZFA and other stakeholders for the Tonga.Online Project Mid-term review. The musicians greatly appreciate this additional equipment.

The group Windhund visited Zimbabwe on a promotional tour of the Tonga.Online Project in 2002 and has since kept in touch with the project through donations  to the studio which was initially in the form of a minidisc recorder. The group has continued to mention the project in various fora in Austria leading to an increased awareness of the project.

Dear friends,

I hope I find you all in good health.

I would like to acknowledge receipt of, and thank you for the the equipment that the studio recently received in the form of an electric guitar, a bass amplifier and a digital tuner.

This equipment is already being put to use by local musicians as can be seen in the attached photo (guitar in the middle) at the recent visit by AZFA and other stakeholders for the Tonga.Online Mid-term review. The amplifier is out of the picture to the right and the musicians greatly appreciate this additional equipment.

I personally appreciate your continued support which is very relevant and continues to boost the capabilities of studio, twalumba ajunza.

Pass my warm regards to your families


Sengamo
