Sweatshop Union is not just a hip hop group with diverse vocal styles and crisp, soulful beats--they are the breath of fresh air that hip hop fans have been waiting for. Originally operating as four independent units (Kyprios, Dirty Circus, Creative Minds, and Innocent Bystanders), the Sweatshop Union Collective came together to offer an alternative to the seemingly repetitive, negative-natured release of rap music.

tofino concert - marimba muzuva

thursday, march 20, 2009Marimba Muzuva

Seaplane Base Rec Hall, Ucluelet
7 pm

Tickets: $10 adults / $5 kids 12 & under
Family of 4 pass $25

Advance ticket sales at Mermaid Tales Bookstore, or Hungry Bear Naturals in Tofino, and at Wild Heather Books, or Image West Gallery & Gifts in Ucluelet

Musical percussion & gumboot dancing performance for all ages!

Marimba Muzuva’s happy and hypnotic music has been a crowd-pleaser since the early 1990’s. Since that time the band has carved a prominent name for itself in the West Coast folk and world music scene by playing a wide variety of performances & getting audiences up on their feet! The music has a power all it’s own: vibrant, interactive, and percussive. Infectious melodies and pulsing rhythms of Zimbabwean music, hand-crafted instruments, visually dynamic performances, energetic dance… all in a spirit of celebration!

Why do eager Canadian crowds gather to experience marimba music? What possible link could a group of musicians from Canada's wet and windy coast have with the exotic, sun-dappled music of Zimbabwe? The answer can be found in the music itself. It makes the world smaller, there becomes here, and everyone connects - with each other, with the rhythm of the earth and with the nurturing energy of the sun. In fact, it is impossible to hear the sound of the marimbas and NOT be transplanted to the sun and colour of distant land. Let’s go there!

*Those who participated in the morning workshop may want to join in. The second workshop will take place on Saturday from 11am-12:30pm*

Absolutely everyone welcome!
