How does it feel to be Finnish, African, or both? Who tells our stories best?

Derived from the isiZulu word for a meeting or a meaningful discussion, INDABA invites you to experience a vibrant merge of bamboo flute grooves, Tanzanian rhythms and a taste of South African amapiano and solos on voice, trombone, flutes, timbila, percussion, storytelling and dance. The performers speak and sing in Finnish, English, Kiswahili and Kisumbwa.

Let’s have an indaba!
