Co-sponsored by the Dance and Music Departments, Kusika is an ensemble dedicated to performing dance, drumming, and storytelling from Africa and the African diaspora. Founded in 1992, Zambezi has been inspired by traditional Zimbabwean music as well as contemporary African styles. Zambezi’s chromatic marimbas are hybrids, combining tempered tuning with a rich and buzzy African tone, making this a truly unique ensemble.
