The ensemble\u2019s performances highlight the ensemble\u2019s pure voices, augmented by minimalistic percussion, traditional instruments such as the mbira (thumb piano) and organic, authentic dance movements.\r\n\r\nThe word \u201cnobuntu\u201d is an African concept that values humbleness, love, unity, and family from a woman\u2019s perspective. Nobuntu, as an ensemble, represents a new generation of young African women singers who celebrate and preserve their culture, beauty, and heritage through art. Their ideology is that music can be an important vehicle for change, one that transcends racial, tribal, religious, gender, and economic boundaries.\r\n\r\nStudents are encouraged to take advantage of the special $7 student rate for this performance. Adult tickets to the performance are $30, and discounts are available for Carnegie Hall members, senior citizens, and military. To purchase tickets, please call 304-645-7917 or visit www.carnegiehallwv.org.\r\n\r\nThe Mainstage Lounge host for this performance is Blackwell\u2019s Catering. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.\r\n\r\nCarnegie Hall also invites the public to return the following morning, Saturday, Nov. 11, 10-11:30 a.m. for the Nobuntu Song & Drum workshop, facilitated by members of the ensemble. Cost for this workshop is $10 and all skill levels are welcome. Please call Carnegie Hall to reserve your space in the workshop.
