Mzaza brings the magic of Europe to Queensland

Fans in Queensland prepare to be whisked away to Europe as our Children of the Road tour, travelling across the state from 27 July to 27 October 2017.

We will embark on our tour in Childers on 27 July before travelling to Brisbane, Boonah, Beaudesert, Gold Coast, Mt. Tambourine, Emerald, Gladstone, Millmerran and Mackay, with more locations yet to be announced.

It is such a treat to get to visit some beautiful parts of Queensland we have been looking forward to returning to as well as getting to know many new communities.

Audiences around Australia and Europe have really connected with the show and we hope that new Queensland audiences enjoy it as much as we will no doubt enjoy performing it for them. We love meeting new people and hearing their stories, so this big Queensland tour is really something we are looking forward to.

The production has a strong emphasis on engaging with audiences, with a keen focus on spreading the beauty and intricacies of world music. Mzaza offers a series of community music and writing workshops involving local musicians and writers which lead to performance outcomes.

The workshops are a great way to get to know the local folk and creatives. We work with community choirs, folk, ukulele and writers’ groups to share our music and migration stories. After the workshop we invite people to get up on stage during the show and perform a song with us if they want to.

Don’t miss this great opportunity to hear and play with Mzaza!
