Warming up: Zawadi with choir leader Rachel Milne at their first public performance in April
Great to hear the Zawadi Women’s Choir is going from strength to strength. Since their first appearance in April this year they have been collecting a growing list of requests (and some new members). If you didn’t hear them in the Festival preview on Leith FM you can see and hear them in person at the Mela on Saturday 8 August in the Garden Stage from 5-5.30pm.
Zawadi also have a busy autumn ahead with performances in Penicuik, East Lothian and Edinburgh. See more on Africa Centre Scotland website.
And of course there is plenty more to see and hear (not to mention lots of good things to eat at the Mela) which will be back in Pilrig Park from 7-9 August.
(We’re intrigued to see the Lothian and Borders Police choir take the Garden Stage on Sunday 9 August.)
