Featuring traditional and contemporary music, projected visuals, song, dance and spoken word, Anna Mudeka takes us on a journey from ancient to modern-day Zimbabwe, London and Norfolk.

A tale of ancestors, identity, migration, atavism and DNA – Anna’s story begins with an epic migration from Central Africa 5000 years ago, follows the Bantu Tribe from Baka all the way to Zimbabwe to build the biggest kingdom in Africa in 1200 AD, and finally traces Anna’s own migration to the western hemisphere some 800 years later.
