Our trip to Zimbabwe was ambitious this year. Performing at HIFA (Harare International Festival of the Arts) was the reason to be there, and the vehicle to deliver us, but there was so much more that unfolded. For me it started in Dubai with Nasa and Colin, the filmmakers.
Our layover was just 14 hours. The perfect amount of time to actually claim that you’ve stepped foot into a new place (outside of an airport), but not long enough to require somewhere to sleep. The taxi ride from the airport took us past the world’s tallest tower, and through a cityscape that was like none I have ever seen.
A lot happened while we were in Zimbabwe. I was reminded of what a special treat it is to travel with music as a focus. Music is such a powerful language, connector and vehicle, on and off of the stage. Beyond performing at the HIFA (Harare International Festival of Arts) festival this year, Publish The Quest had the opportunity to embark on a musical journey that affected us all deeply.
Thanks to everyone who helped make our latest kickstarter project a go!
