“ Windhoek is filled with dynamic, creative, urban people – people who crave to move to and be moved by interesting, heartfelt sounds and rhythms that talk about our lives. We are caught between living like we die tomorrow and having to live to create a future. This piece explores the quiet in our still and the loud of our scream. We celebrate the sound of the sun rising and the rhythm of the hunger in our bellies. In this production we celebrate the sound of our responsibilities and the rhythm of freedom and peace – a circle that various Windhoekers find themselves in. We wish to motivate: getting up and moving forward,” says the duo whose music production called “The Sounds That Get Us Up, The Rhythms That Get Us Moving!”
MoKaZaLu Ma & Shiva Child are exploring “The Sounds That Get Us Up, The Rhythms That Get Us Moving in a fluid yet structured, ancestral yet modern piece combining pre-produced beats with multiple live vocal looping & live Mbira & Percussion.”
