Some background:

The BaTonga, the people of the Great River lost their ancestry when the Zambezi Valley was flooded to construct Kariba dam and lake in a colonial, World-Bank financed project at the end of the 1950. The Tonga people had to undergo the traumatic experience of forceful removal and resettlement. While the benefits of Kariba bypass most of the rural communities till today.

After 60 years of struggle, the Valley Tonga people have a story to tell about cultural survival, creative resilience and determination for self-help and self-organisation; and this is what you can hear resonate across he Radio-Bridge Compilation and the original recordings which featured in the call-out playlist.

You are most welcome to get in touch with us.
