Radio-Bridge Compilation in local off-line/ on-air recasts

20180711_145439The Radio-Bridge Compilation is moving with us on the ground. It’s being re-cast and broadcast by the hands and voices of the Zongwe FM Team as we push on together.

20180712_163646A special edition of 100 CD has been produced in a process of local fundraising and community mobilisation for Sinazongwe Community Radio.

20180719_173854The Radio-Bridge Compilation received a celebratory local launch with a Zongwe Family Broadcast and a Concert with local musicians, the School Choir of Sinazongwe Primary/Secondary and Culture Groups.

20180719_172955We received and aired messages of support by Mario (Freies Radio Salzkammergut), Nervious (@Panos) and Petronella (@Phoenix FM). Zongwe’s announcers were wearing t-shirts of Zongwe’s partner radio @Freies Radio Salzkammergut in Austria.

20180720_175228The Radio-Bridge Concert was graced even by a very special visiter: Zubo Trust’s Matron Muleya joint the event from Binga across the Lake and national border. Zubo Trust and Zongwe FM are the pillars of the Radio-Bridge across the Zambezi for the Tonga Communities of the Valley. It’s the voices of Zubo and Zongwe women which resonate in the vocals of the Radio-Bridge Compilation.

Sales of the compilation will benefit radio-makers in training both sides of the Zambezi !
