Truly, girls run the world. Their persuasion can build a nation.

This was revealed last weekend when Dominican Convent Primary School held their annual music and cultural presentation day. The colourful and well choreographed event was held to promote culture and arts among the children.

Ululation and tears of joy were flowing after some of them emerged winners, walking away with prestigious awards at the event.

In an interview with CLS, one of the organisers said the event was meant to honour the girl child’s talent.

“It was talent galore as pupils took their time to showcase their talent from music to dancing,” said an official.

Surprisingly girls love local music and this saw songs from award winning musicians Jah Prayzah, Pachihera and Mai Shingisai Suluma among others topping the charts of the day.

“Ndirwo Rudo, harunei une mari” goes the sing along melodious voices from the girls.

In fact if you were there, you could testify that their endless power can beautify the nation. However, not only did the girls exhibit extraordinary choral skills in the choir but they also left the crowd in awe when they put up a scintillating performance with a piano and flute classics display.

US R n B musician Alicia Keys could have turned green with envy if she had the chance to see how the Steve Wonder touch was on the girls.

Back home, traditional dances were the crowd’s favourite as the girls managed to showcase their paces.

“I am very happy that I managed to showcase in front of our parents. One thing that we proved well was the traditional dances, of which some think if we grew up living in the northern suburbs, marimba, mbira, hosho and ngoma are things from rural but alas we love them,” said Chiedza Muchena, from the marimba group.

She said she would want to pursue a career in the arts if given the opportunity.

The school’s marimba group will be touring Europe later next month.
