It's a rendezvous of Piano and Mbira!

Join us together with the Mbira artist and singer, Hope Masike from Zimbabwe, and pianist, Andreas Kern from Germany.

This unique initiative, supported by the German Embassy in Zimbabwe, the two talented musicians,began thisintercultural music project that melds the classical instruments of piano and Mbira.

The Mbira, an instrument with a history of over 1300 years, also known as the 'thumb piano' in the West, is traditionally played in various regions of Southern and Eastern Africa during religious and societal gatherings. In recent decades, it has made its mark in contemporary music, spreading its influence beyond the borders of Africa. In 2020, the UNESCO recognized its significance by including it in the list of Intangible Cultural Heritage.

Hope Masike is renowned both as a traditional and modern Mbira player, as well as an exceptional vocalist. She has collaborated with musical legends like Oliver Mtukudzi and Salif Keita, gracing festivals both at home and abroad.

Andreas Kern, a pianist who studied in Cologne and Berlin, has performed in various music formats across numerous countries in Europe, Asia, America, and Africa. From his student days, he has been committed to the idea of presenting classical music in a contemporary and innovative way, with the aim of engaging a new, younger audience.

In October 2022, these two artists met for the first time in Harare, where they co-created a musical program blending Western classical music, traditional Mbira melodies, and original compositions by Hope Masike.

I met them at a special outdoor concert at the Park in Göppingen
