Museum Mini – Balafon & Mbira with Siama Matuzungidi

Tuesday, May 25, 10:30AM
Friday, June 25, 5:00PM

About the Program

Join Siama Matuzungidi, originally from the Western region of Democratic Republic of Congo, as he shares two instruments from his African heritage – the Balafon which is used to communicate important messages in the villages and the Mbira also known as the thumb piano. And just like Siama did while he was growing up, you are invited to use simple found sounds from around the house as shakers to play along with the music.
