"For the Tonga people like me, there is something deeply biblical about the word MULONGA, yet it is a modern story too. One of massive but unshared technology. One of plentiful water but perpetual drought."

Linz09 Parade Documentary released
Monday, 07 December 2009 13:01

A comprehensive audio and video documentary of Parade, an encounter of musicians from different parts of the world in Linz / Austria, has been released. The CD/DVD package will be out after presentations in Linz on 8 - 10th December.

Simonga-Maliko, the 30 head strong Ngoma Buntibe group of musicians from Siachilaba and Sinazongwe on both sides of Lake Kariba have been the core ensemble of this very special festival.

As a participant of a recent presentation of the video documentary at The Mannenberg Jazz club in Harare wrote:

“I enjoyed the whole spectacle of local Austrians being exposed to all sorts of different musical experiences that even people in the home countries of some of the performers never get to hear. It was an amazing juxtaposition of cultures” (Annette Eastwood, Harare / Zimbabwe). Find more feedback on the Parade blog: www.lin09.at/parade-blog

Listen to the Parade soundscapes and watch the musicians from different parts of the world claiming public space along the outskirts of Linz.

The CD/DVD package will be available in Austria at Linz09 InfoCenter on mainsquare in Linz and at Extraplatte shop, Extraplatte EX 742-2, ISBN 978-3-221-17422-4,  in Vienna, Währingerstr. 46. In Zimbabwe you might approach Tonga.Online team in Binga for a copy or Simonga in Siachilaba.
