KUTAPIRA Zimbabwean Afro-Fusion

Wednesday Sep 30, 2020


Hadden Park

3405 Ogden Ave
Vancouver, BC
(Kits Point)

REGISTRATION REQUIRED to comply with Covid rules for contact tracing and limited capacity of 40 people.  Presented with the support of Publik Secrets (resident fieldhouse host at Hadden Park). IN CASE OF RAIN: Event will be postponed to SEPT. 30.

KUTAPIRA seamlessly blends Zimbabwean Marimba, Afro-Cuban & West African rhythms, Reggae, Samba, Afrobeat, Funk, Jazz, Cumbia, Disco and Hip Hop all contribute to a fusion of styles intelligently selected.​

What started out thirteen years ago as a youth world music initiative has metamorphosed into the crowd pleasing percussion explosion known today as Kutapira. The name Kutapira means “Sweetness” in the Shona language of Zimbabwe, a fitting title for a band that plays a fusion of Zimbabwean marimba with West African and Afro-Cuban percussion. Join us for an uplifting and grooving gathering that will start Autumn on a positive note.

Performers: Sangito Bigelow, Chris Couto, Theo Vincent, Jeremy Bryant
