The workshop will be led by Bruce Ncube

Bruce Ncube is a Zimbabwean artist who specialises in teaching traditional songs from Zimbabwe in 3 to 6-part harmonies.The songs and harmonies that he teaches are emotionally charged and uplifting, designed to build participants confidence with singing. His method of teaching is in the traditional oral/aural way; reminiscent of when people would gather around a fire in the evenings, or whilst working in the fields and start weaving harmonies. The workshops are inclusive and participatory, and one does not need to be experienced in singing to take part in them.
