What is Okavango African Orchestra? Is it Eritrean? Zimbabwean? Senegalese? Burundian? Ghanaian? Or is it Madagascan?
Actually, the orchestra is Eritrean, Zimbabwean, Senegalese, Burundian, Ghanaian, AND Madagascan. It is what its name says: African. A unique band of talented musicians from all parts of Africa, as diverse as Africa’s cultural mosaic itself, it’s a one-of-a-kind, exceptional collective merging different musical traditions into something new, never heard before, and truly awesome.
The band’s motto is, “Africa without borders… before the borders were created.” Makes perfect sense!
