ZIMBABWEAN a cappella group Nobuntu will be performing a concert of the traditional songs infused with shades of gospel and Afro-Jazz at the campus of West Virginia State University.

The concert is set for Thursday, November 9.

The five-member, all female ensemble, will be appearing in the P. Ahmed Williams Auditorium of Ferrell Hall as part of a series of shows the group is performing throughout the United States.

The group’s name, Nobuntu, is an African concept that values humbleness, love, purpose, unity and family from a woman’s perspective.

Nobuntu’s music is described as a fusion of traditional Zimbabwean-rooted music, Afro Jazz, Gospel and crossover with minimalistic percussion, traditional instruments and some dance movements.

During their performance, the group will be joined for one song by local students from the choirs of Stonewall Jackson Middle School and Capital High School. The song, “Shosholoza”, is a traditional Zimbabwean song about mountains, trains and miners.

Also, the night of the performance, a limited edition, hand-made Yellow Jacket will be offered for sale in cooperation with Love Zimbabwe, an independent charity, working directly with people in Chinamhora Community.

The Yellow Jackets are wire, bead sculptures specially designed to help raise funds for construction of a library for the community.
