Crystal DJ Kwe Favel

Crystal DJ Kwe Favel of Wax Warriors Record Label has partnered up with Claudia Wegener of Radio Continental Drift to release “Radio Remixes Voices of Binga” Electronic Drum Music Album this March 31, 2016.

Can you name an album completely produced from start to finish by women? In most cases, “no!” Not only have the radio samples have been recorded, collected and produced by Claudia, but DJ Kwe has also recorded, produced, engineered and mastered the entire album.

These female electronica artists even tear down international barriers as Ms. Favel is located in Canada and Claudia currently resides in Germany. When you combine both their portfolios, they have over 30 years of experience combined overachieving in a male-dominated technology industry. Their album promises to introduce another method to “preserve Oral Traditions, Ancient Languages and Indigenous Teachings through Aboriginal Electronica On The Rise.

A luggage of equipment for women in Binga

2016/03/01

luggage of equipment for Zubo copy

Can you help add some funds to this equipment…? We are still lacking resources for the women’s subsistence during the multimedia training. The task is for the women to learn documenting their own work, daily live and culture of the Tonga people, and ultimately, to promote and market their local products, such as Tonga baskets, dried fish, soap from Jatropha oil or Baobab Juice.

We are currently running a fund-raiser in Germany supported by FUgE and Welthaus Bielefeld. Find the call-out (in German), further information and contact here: Spendenaufruf Zubo Trust Zimbabwe.

The project and its background:

Over the past five year, the local women’s organisation Zubo Trust has established successful economic empowerment projects securing the livelihood and self-reliance of women in rural Binga, Northern Zimbabwe. However, hardly anything of all this is known to outsiders. The BaTonga have been a marginalised community for long and Binga is far away from the country’s urban centres like Bulawayo and Harare.

Radio continental drift is soon joining the women of Zubo Trust in Binga as a “multimedia volunteer”. The media project with the women has been in the planning for more than a year. Recently, funds for some equipment could be procured from the German Boeckler Foundation/ Solidarity FundNow, subsistence of the women is our big worry – even more so, since Binga is badly effected by the current drought in Southern Africa.

All incoming funds from our call-out will be used to reimburse the women who participate in the media project and to help with the subsistence of those who wish to learn taking documentation and promotion in to their own hands for the benefit of the local community.

Here, you can listen to a podcast produced by African Women in Germany, which tells about the Tonga people and the women of Zubo Trust.

With your support, the women in Binga will soon be able producing their own podcasts and showcase their work and products on their website. Keep in touch with them here: http://www.zubo.org Thanks for listening and for your support!

Twalumba! from the women in Binga!
