Music by PrudenceDVD - 2010
Prudence Mabhena and the members of the Liyana band live and work at King George the VI School for Children with Disabilities in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. In Zimbabwe, disability is often considered a result of witchcraft. Many disabled children are neglected, abandoned, and even killed. KGVI is a school for physically disabled students from all over the country, focused on empowering students with the ability to live as independent a life as they possibly can. Liyana is an afro-fusion band formed at KGVI. They play marimba, traditional drums, keyboard, and piano, compose their own music, and write their own songs. In 2006, they won an inter-regional music festival in Mozambique and as a prize toured Sweden, Netherlands, and Belgium for 5 weeks. Prudence and Liyana are all about talent, family, sharing, and friendship.
