Manuel Bagorro, HIFA Founder and Artistic Director speaks about BancABC Day.
“We are here to celebrate one aspect of the festival, which are the incredibly valuable groundbreaking partnerships that exist between the corporate community and the artistic community with the framework of HIFA as a focus for those partnerships.
The opening of HIFA is an emotional night. It’s a temperature gauge of what’s happening within the local arts community; where our mind are artistically. You try something and it is exquisite and seems to catch the feeling of the moment so effectively you celebrate it together. This year we are on track to do something that really captures the moment.
We are working with a number of collaborators. Most significantly the anchor of the show is Mokoomba, a Zimbabwean group of wonderful musicians with whom we have had a relationship over a period of years.“
