Ruzivo

 Ruzivo

Ruzivo includes Paul Mataruse, Dana Moffett, Rose Orskog, Lonnie Welsh, Hannah Wahl and Jocelyn Oakley. Various members of this group will team teach several marimba workshops during Zimfest using the approach that they have used at Camp Ruzivo on Whidbey Island.

Ruzivo takes traditional and contemporary Zimbabwean music and infuses it with Paul Mataruse's musical sensibilities borne out of all night jam sessions in his hometown of Harare, Zimbabwe. What emerges is a musical style that honors the individual talents of the band members while staying true to the communal and welcoming nature of Zimbabwean music.
