ZEYBRAH (Zest for Education of Youth Brings Rhythm Arts and Humanities) and the OCDC (Orisha Community Development Corporation) are proud to present the 13th annual Moment In Time Festival -RUMBA GLOBAL. Our theme for this year's explosive musical extravaganza is: 'healing through music."
ZEYBRAH is making an urgent appeal for your support, due to financial cutbacks plus our goal to raise a substantial amount of money to be sent to South Africa, for Miriamís organization, The Miriam Makeba Rehabilitation Centre for Abused Girls.
We are counting on you to be generous and help in any manner that you deem appropriate. Gifts can be sent online through a secure system, (ZEYBRAH.org) or mailed to ZEYBRAH. We thank you in advance for your support, and tax deductible contributions.
ZEYBRAH is collaborating with South African cast members of the Broadway show The Lion King, including Bongi Duma, who will spearhead a special band, that will play many of Miriamís famous and cherished songs. Other components of the festival are: a program/booklet (which will include dedications in the form of quotations, poems, drawings, bios of artsts), film/video showing, art exhibition, and a reception.
Miriam Makeba toured the world and brought joy to millions with her magnificent voice and song. She was awarded honorary doctorates, had passports from over 10 counties, recorded hundreds of songs, and introduced African music to countless people around the globe. She was the goodwill ambassador for FAO, and supported campaigns for HIV/Aids awareness; she often addressed the UN on human rights issues.
You may choose to place an add in our program; you may check our website, (ZEYBRAH.org) or mail contributions to: ZEYBRAH, P.O. Box 6, Cliffwood, NJ 07721.
The Moment In Time Festival is a celebration of African and African/ Caribbean cultural heritage through the arts. The festival began in 1984 as a multi-media family festival, and has evolved over the years into a tribute honoring the memory of a cultural hero with a program that reflects their contributions.
The Moment In Time Festival is designed to promote global peace and understanding, often drawing on the rich cultural heritages of Senegal, Nigeria and Cuba. It includes folkloric and modern music and drumming, storytelling and traditional African dance, integrated with a message of peace and unity.
