A Play with Music and Pageantry

Musik: Pauline Oliveros
Buch: Ione


Regionalcode: 0


A powerful music-theatre work, Njinga merges sumptuous layers of contemporary and traditional song, dance and music to tell the real-life story of an extraordinary 17th century African regent.

Njinga ruled 17th century Ndongo (now Angola) as ‘king’ because tribal custom forbade her to rule as a woman. A skilled diplomat and fierce warrior, Njinga kept the Portuguese at bay from Ndongo for the 40 years of her rule. Flowing freely between time periods, Njinga traces the diaspora of Njinga’s people to Brazil and the United States, linking the ancient warrior’s life to that of a contemporary African-American woman who has lost touch with her heritage.

Oliveros’ score and use of electronics and spatialisation provides an environment for the traditional African music, heightening the drama.

This live recording is derived from the BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) Next Wave Festival performances of 1993.
