Speak ZimLove is a joint tour between two powerhouse Zimbabwean groups, “Outspoken and the Essence”—one of the country’s most cutting-edge hip-hop groups— and international touring band, “Bongo Love” – Zimbabwean Afro-coustics-style at its best — will soon take the stage together to launch their joint USA tour. Coming from a country of extreme human rights violations and rampant poverty, these young African musicians will bring their message of hope and activism through music and poetry at a time when American audiences are becoming more aware than ever of the plight of their African brothers and sisters.
We are appealing for your support in helping us bring these musicians over here. We’re doing the tour on a shoestring budget, so have launched a fundraising campaign at http://kck.st/b6nfE8. We hope you will help us exceed our goal by August 7! Please visit our tour website: www.speakzimlove2010.com for more information about the bands and the tour.
