To deepen cultural relations between Zimbabwe and the United States of America, Leonard “DJ Drummer B” Ware was yesterday presented with the Spirit of Detroit Award by councilwoman Janee’ Ayers and the members of the Detroit City council.
Kumbulani Zamuchiya, the Co-founder, and Director at Zimbabwe Cultural Centre of Detroit said he was pleased by the feat achieved by DJ Drummer B Ware.
“I am so humbled and feeling warm inside to see my DJ friend DJ Drummer B Ware presented with the Spirit Of Detroit Award this morning by councilwoman Janee’ Ayers and the members of Detroit City council. I have worked with Dj Drummer B on a number of editions from a project we instigated called the Skype and Mix, DJ collaboration between Detroit Djs and Zimbabwean DJs,” Zamuchiya said.
The Skype and Mix project is a project that was initiated and conceptualized from the Zimbabwe Cultural Centre of Detroit (ZCCD) which was formed by Kumbulani Zamuchiya and his colleague/collaborator Chido Johnson, to serve to dismantle naturally occurring as well as constructed boundaries both physical and otherwise, with a view to promoting a community which has the global and local in mind.
“Recognizing our role as cultural ambassadors, we endeavor to foster a culture of research, dialogue, and production across the boundaries of Detroit, Michigan and Zimbabwe. I invite you to check our work and activities on our Facebook page, Zimbabwe Cultural Centre of Detroit, and Facebook page 156 Tambira Lab,” Zamuchiya added.
