Kuzanga Marimba Dance Party!

All Ages Dance Party!

With roots in Zimbabwe’s Shona Culture and traditionally used for both trance and dance, Kuzanga Marimba’s interlocking melodies and rhythms hold a multi-generational appeal.

Band members play seven wooden marimbas: sopranos, tenors, baritone, and bass, punctuated by hosho (gourd rattles) and singing. Don’t miss the chance for kids and adults to learn about these unique instruments and experiment with playing them.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Scotts Valley Library.

Peace PaperThe ancient tradition
of making paper by hand.

Pedal Power
Ready to make paper
Laying out paper sheet
Mixing the pulp

You will actually create paper from an article of clothing using the same process which has been practiced for over 2000 years. Peace Paper's process is a vehicle for personal expression and social change. The basic principle is that "one must break something down before it can be transformed into something new and beautiful". With its "portable studio", Peace Paper provides workshops which facilitate healing and incite public action around the world.
