Format: Paperback
Myrna & Kristin have created a true treasure. For those of us in Love with Zimbabwean music, this is a necessity for everyone's home library. With the struggles that are encompassing Zimbabwe today, it is imperative that we 'Keep the Embers Alive' until Peace and Justice become Alive Again in that magical country. Thank you for creating this beautiful piece of Art.
