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.
