Voices of the Ancestors: Gail Nyoka, Moyo Mutamba, Chirine El Ansary
March 26, 2020 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Whispers come from the land, and history speaks through the voices of the ancestors. Gail Nyoka tells stories she heard from the Ewe people of Ghana, about a voice that came to her of a woman snatched away, and her personal reflections of the land which gave birth to many of her ancestors. Moyo Mutamba grew up in Zimbabwe, where Mbira music is known for its call and response through time, connecting the player and the ancestors. Chirine El Ansary was born in Cairo and grew up between Egypt and France. She has told stories in Cairo’s ancient places and in streets, markets, and old palaces throughout the Arab World.
