Ballet Inganzo- drum project

Drums One of the discoveries made when Ballet Inganzo came to the UK was the drums with which they perform. The drums are constructed by local mastercraftsmen out of hollowed trees, double-headed with cowhide and tensioned with leather strapping. These hand-crafted drums are unique and magnificent, both as musical instruments and as craft objects and there would undoubtedly be a significant niche market for such drums in the UK.

Inshuti-UK are working to create a channel for these drums to be brought to the UK for resale, with all profits going back to Rwanda to help the community.

Other projects include:

Assistance to local HIV/AIDS projects

The school project aims at establishment of a friendship programme between Rwandan and UK Schools. Communications between the schools will allow the two cultures to gain a wider understanding of each-other, and it is hoped that the UK schools will be able to provide material assistance through books, clothes and fund-raising.

On July 22nd, 2002 Ballet Inganzo spent a day in Studio 1 of world famous ''Air Studios'. The session was made possible by the staff and engineers at Air recording the music of Inganzo without charge, and the result was twelve tracks of music, including the drum choirs, traditional tribal war crys and a number of songs.


Chris Redmond's brother Ian, who is one of the worlds leading great ape conservation experts, will be running in the 2004 London Marathon in aid of the Ape Alliance and Born Free Ape Projects.

From Gentil and other chimp orphans at Lwiro Sanctuary in Congo, to the UN Great Apes Survival Project.

Born Free will be monitoring his progress as he juggles his vital conservation work with preparation for the great race and Caribzones is proud to be associated with this worth cause.
