HIFA (Harare International Festival of the Arts) lived up to the hype. It’s pretty impressive: nearly a couple of hundred performances this year, around 2/3rds of them artists from Zimbabwe. There was a wonderful buzz in the city over the 6 days. For me personally, the performances I’ll remember best were from Hope Masike, Tariro neGitare, Vee Mukarati, Salif Keita, and the wonderful Perfect Friction (all the way from Wicklow !).

Fantastic lineup! We go up womad every year and have been privileged to see many wonderful African artists. This year the performers look as good as ever. End of July if you are home. X
Salif Keita! Me so jealous! He should come back to Mali!!
Haha! He was good, I have to say. Hopefully he’ll do a show for you before you leave!
