Ruzivo

Ruzivo includes Paul Mataruse, Rose Orskog, Dana Moffett, Lonnie Welsh, and Nick Robinson. Various members of this group will team teach several marimba workshops during Zimfest using the approach that they developed at Camp Ruzivo on Whidbey Island. Ruzivo explores traditional and contemporary arrangements of Zimbabwean music and infuses them with Paul's musical sensibilities borne out of all-night jam sessions in Harare, Zimbabwe. What emerges is a spirit that honors the individual talents of his fellow band members while staying true to the welcoming nature of Zimbabwean music.
