IN MEMORIAM
We would like to take this opportunity to send our condolences and sympathies to the family & friends of our friend in Music and Dance Donald Kadumba, who died after a long illness last week. Political tension prevented our attending his funeral in Highfield. Donald was a fine Mbira Player, a Dancer of renown, a founding member of the Dance Foundation Course, Dance People, TUMBUKA and a choreographer who worked with Artists for Peace. He was a precious source of Traditional and Contemporary Arts and a warm and supportive spirit.

The Deserter
A song by John Richards
Sung by Chris Hamblin and Elastic Band.
