Governors' Camp in the Maasai Mara is celebrating 30 years of safaris by hosting a month long festival of music in October 2002. Tamasha will be the first ever music festival to be held in the wilds of the Mara, featuring a blend of International and Kenyan music, including traditional, jazz, classical and vocal performances.





Media Arts Center San Diego is proud to welcome the sensational Mexican actress and singer Susana Zabaleta.

Ms. Zabaleta will be present for the Friday (Sept. 14th) and Saturday (Sept. 15th) evening
screenings at 7:30PM of Sexo, Pudor y Lágrimas (Sex, Shame & Tears). Ms. Zabaleta will be present to answer questions and meet with her fans before and after each screening. Accompanying Susana Zabaleta will be the producer of Sexo, Pudor y Lágrimas, Matthias Ehrenberg, and the award-winning Mexican film director Daniel Gruener (Sobrenatural).

Susana Zabaleta has starred in three very popular Mexican films Sexo, Pudor y Lágrimas (Sex
Shame & Tears), Elisa Antes del Fin del Mundo, and Sobrenatural (All of them Witches). She can be seen next in the much- anticipated feature film, Vivir Mata. In addition to her acting career, Susana Zabaleta is best known as a singer for her two albums ¿O fue un sueño? and "Desde el baño". She also recorded the soundtrack for the Spanish-language version of Disney's Pocahontas. Her next album is scheduled to be released by Universal Music in October 2002.

Sexo, Pudor y Lágrimas will be screened daily (beginning Friday, September 14 and ending
Thursday, September 20th) at 5:15 p.m. (except Sat.), 7:30 p.m. and 10:00 p.m.; with additional screening times on the weekend (12:45 p.m., 3:00 p.m.). Sexo, Pudor y Lágrimas and the entire Cine Mexicano: Mexican Film Series will take place at Mann Hazard Center 7 movie theaters located in Hazard Center in San Diego¹s Mission Valley (7510 Hazard Center Drive in Mission Valley).

Originally a successful stage play in Mexico, Sexo, Pudor y Lágrimas (Mexico, 105 min., 1999)
follows the amusing trials and tribulations of two young couples in an upscale Mexican neighborhood frustrated at their failure to live up to their professional and personal ambitions. After hedonist Ana (Susana Zabaleta) and slouchy husband Carlos split up, and high-strung ex- model Andrea gets fed up with the constant infidelities of ad executive spouse Miguel, the men decide to take one apartment and the women another, with comic results. S.P.Y.L. is the most successful domestic film ever, in the history of Mexican cinema.

Ticket prices are $7.50 General Admission / $5.50 Students & Seniors. Tickets can be
purchased prior to each screening at the Mann Hazard Center 7 box office. Also available for purchase is a $20 Reception Pass (includes screening of Sexo, Pudor y Lágrimas & September 14th Opening Night Reception). The reception will be held at the DoubleTree Hotel San Diego's Club Max from 5:30 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. In addition to meeting these very special guests (Susana Zabaleta, Daniel Gruener, and Matthias Ehrenberg), the reception will include entertainment, free beer provided by Dos XX, free tequila provided by Tequila Cazadores, and delicious hors d'oeuvres. The pass can be purchased at the door on the night of the reception and/or in advance via the Internet at

audiences only. For complete series schedule and ticket information visit or call (619) 230-1938.

Botanic Park, Adelaide



WOMADELAIDE has found a New Zealand partner for its festivals of world music. In 2003, the international WOMAD organisation plans to tour artists to Adelaide, then take them to a new event in Taranaki in NZ.

By spreading costs between the two festivals, WOMAD hopes to be able to tour more and better artists. While 2003 Womadelaide is definite, the event's future in Adelaide, and whether it will be annual or biennial, is yet to be addressed.



Gatherings 2003

Grand Musical Gatherings

These Gatherings are a distinctive annual event which combine recorder workshops/masterclasses with concerts by leading national musicians. Workshops are open to participants of all ages, all standards, and to those with little or no musical experience.

The Grand Musical Gatherings will be held in Melbourne, Newcastle, Canberra, Armidale, Blue Mountains and Adelaide are a three-day workshop for recorder covering early, contemporary and cross-cultural music. In 2003 participants will be introduced to 'Rhythm and the Recorder' with special electives focussing on contemporary and cross-cultural rhythm as an aid to musical performance. The Gatherings can be seen to reflect contemporary trends in World Music which is being increasingly appreciated by youth audiences.

The timetable comprises 'home groups' in the mornings and a choice of two electives in the afternoon, followed by a concert each evening. Tutors are drawn from professional performers and will comprise Tony Lewis, Rodney Waterman, Zana Clarke, Hans-Dieter Michatz, Justo Diaz, Benjamin Thorn and Robyn Mellor.

The Gatherings focus on cultural education and professional development through their workshops. They aim to provide an excellence in professional and educational development. Players of all ages and standards have the opportunity to study with renowned tutors of their instrument. While the recorder is played in most schools in Australia, the workshops and rhythm electives offered to participants in these Gatherings present a rare opportunity for young people to extend their skills. Tutors also have the opportunity to exchange musical and teaching ideas throughout the weekend.

Participants also have the opportunity to broaden their repertoire, particularly in Australian music. Trade displays showing music, instruments are a valuable educational resource, allowing participants to bring back source material to their schools or community.
