The Anna Mudeka Band – Castle Acre Village Hall on Friday 28th June at 7.30pm
A night that promises unique music full of colour, vibrance and happiness!
The gloriously vibrant, Zimbabwean musician Anna Mudeka, will be performing upbeat, African rhythms along with her band, at Castle Acre Village Hall on Friday 28th June at 7.30pm with support from the arts and community development charity Creative Arts East.
The Anna Mudeka Band play songs rooted in the Mbira music of Zimbabwe, and have created a unique sound which they call chimurenga pop, where the sound is full of colour, vibrance, happiness and spice!
Mudeka’s songs are lively, uplifting and draw from a host of African rhythms, chants and choruses, which are sometimes fused with Latin and European musical influences. She usually writes and sings lyrics in her mother tongue of Zimbabwe, which easily translates through the soulful expression and versatile tonal qualities of her vocals. Mudeka is passionate about her cultural roots and even more so about sharing her culture with the rest of the world. This will be a fantastic night of music and dancing that’s not to be missed!
My Robot Heart – The Chequers Inn pub, Binham on Sunday 30th June at 2.30pm
My Robot Heart By Molly Naylor
Creative Arts East is excited to have the very talented and accomplished poet, Molly Naylor, perform her show My Robot Heart at the The Chequers Inn, Binham on Sunday 30th June at 2.30pm.
My Robot Heart is a warm, beguiling and poignant story, inspired by experiments about love using robots in Japan. Naylor offers the tale of three generations of one family and an impending wedding, and together they explore the meanings of love and fear, and the relationship between the two. Through this touching and humorous tale, Molly laments her lost sense of romance and figures out if love is more than just a science.

theatre-maker from Cornwall. She has written for The Independent and her poems have been featured across BBC Radio.
