ChiNdanga! Listening Sessions

This Woza Friday at Zeitz MCOAA join us for ChiNdanga! Listening Sessions that will amplify various themes from the exhibition, Five Bhobh – Painting at the End of an Era through sound. 

ChiNdanga! Sound Interventions will take place throughout the evening, starting from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m in the Five Bhobh exhibition space (Level 3). A discussion and Q&A will take place from 6:45 p.m to 7:30 p.m in the same venue. 

ChiNdanga! is colloquial for radio in Zimbabwe. It is a pertinent research and cultural diffusion project, creating a platform which combines a sonic archive, a virtual map, and a digital community. The Zimbabwean trio Kapula, Biko Emcee, and Tigere Mavura conceived of ChiNdanga! as a communication practice based on the ChiNdanga! Sonic Theses below: 

Thesis 1: ChiNdanga! is a transmitter. It is a means of communication; a form of media technology. 

Thesis 2: ChiNdanga! receives, archives/records and transmits information. It is a granary of collective wisdom.

 Thesis 3: ChiNdanga! adapts. It is sensitive to the contexts in which it manifests. 

Thesis 4: ChiNdanga! is democratic. It places more value on the art of listening than the art of performance. 

Thesis 5: ChiNdanga! is cross-cultural and crosses borders. It is not limited by traditions, media forms, conventions, nor geography.

This event required museum admission. Half-price admission applied from 5 p.m – 8:30 p.m. Extended opening hours until 9 p.m.
