Workshop with Stella Chiweshe – 3 – 4 PM

Stella Rambisai Chiweshe is not only a performer, but also an educator. She offers workshops in different aspects of the art as a way to preserve culture. She offers workshops in traditional music, using instruments that play a pivotal role in the lives of the Shona people: Mbira (thumb piano), tribal drums, percussion and voice. The combination gives a sensational rhythm to this music. In Aalst she will focus on the voice as the first and foremost human instrument and present voice training accompanied by the traditional songs in her language Chizezuru. “Voice is the first instrument that almost everybody has, and can use freely. If one can talk she or he can sing as well” All instruments imitate the voice. Stella persuades and frees the inner voice. Once the inner voice is persuaded to come out, then it gives itself a direction!

Stella Chiweshe & The Polyversal Souls – Concert – 17u – 18u

Her Majesty – The Queen of Mbira music from Zimbabwe – like Stella Rambisai Chiweshe is affectionately called, is the first female artist who gained in prestige and has been honored with recognition in a music tradition that’s been dominated by men: in Mbira music – known as the backbone of Zimbabwean music.


The Polyversals Souls is the latest project of former Whitefield Brothers and Poets Of Rhythm-drummer Muggy Whitefield (né Max Weissenfeldt).The Polyversals Souls’ music is a melting pot spanning from Ethiopian melodies to West-African polyrhythms, from sweet whispers to relentless urban groove attacks: All in all their performance is a life-celebrating 21st-century soul ritual.
