Mama Afrika Creative Workshop (11-16)


This event has passed.

What is it?
An interactive, fun, creative workshop based on the life and work of Miriam Makeba for 11-16 year olds.

What will I get from taking part?
Learn and sing Miriam Makeba songs: songs and stories of resilience, hope and determination. “Nyaya” in Shona means ‘real stories’. Inspired by the life of Miriam Makeba, participants can focus on their own ideas for stories/ poetry/ spoken word/ song lyrics about personal strength and speaking out against oppression.

Workshops will include the history of South Africa, the history of Apartheid and Miriam Makeba’s life story, with lots of opportunities for questions and discussion.

Who is leading the project?
Workshop will be led by Anna Mudeka, Zimbabwean born singer, musician and storyteller. Anna will also be performing Mama Afrika at Norwich Theatre Playhouse on 27 Jan.

Do I need any particular skills or experience to take part?
No experience is needed to take part; this workshop is for everyone to explore the stories and music of Miriam Makeba.

I have additional needs. What support is available?
If you have any questions, or comments on how we can adapt the session to suit your needs, please get in touch:
