Centering entirely around the music of Shirley Graham Du Bois Creative in Residence Tanyaradzwa Tawengwa Nzou Mambano, From the Motherland explores Zimbabwean cultural roots, and a personal rite of passage into womanhood. The journey includes 12 songs for solo voice, mbira, piano, percussion and bass. Entitled Mwedzi, which means moon, menstrual cycle, and month in Chivanhu culture, the digital performance moves through four scenes (or cycles) of maturation.
From the Motherland is funded in part by a grant from the Boston Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency. It is co-sponsored by the BCA where Castle of our Skins is a Launchpad Resident at Boston Center for the Arts.
