Audio journey through Binga…

on route to Binga 2

 

…imagine yourself sitting in one of the local combi-taxies, watching the dry bush-land flying past, and listening to the echo of the women telling about their lives, Tonga culture, the history of displacement, basket weaving and fishing… including also voices from the other side of Kariba Lake, like artist/ researcher, Esnart Mweemba… and Bulawayo painter, Nonnie Mathe telling about her Grandma’s basket weaving and the inspiration of Tonga culture to her art making…

Enjoy the journey of listening!
