Award-winning ensemble Ezimnyama are bound for Europe for the first time since the creation of the group as they are set to perform in Switzerland and France.
They will depart on 28 July and their first stop will be in the city of Martigny in Switzerland where they will stay for 12 days, staging eight shows in that country.
They will then travel to France where they will stay for two weeks and stage 12 shows.
Founder and director of Ezimnyama, Phibion Ncube said it was the first time for him to escort the ensemble out of Africa and he felt challenged at the same time happy to have received the opportunity.
“I am scared a lot because I have never led a delegation of artistes out of the African continent – at the same time I feel honoured to have been given this opportunity by our French friends to showcase our culture on such an international platform,” said Ncube.
