The King George VI Centre is situated in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.  The Centre takes in physically disabled students who attend the King George VI junior and secondary schools.  While at the centre the students are taught to be as independent as their disabilities allow.  They live in independent living units where they learn to take care of themselves under the guidance of a houseparent. 
In order to increase confidence and to develop individual skills, the Centre runs a very strong music programme and over the past few years we have found some very good singers among the students.  At the moment the Centre has a band blending traditional and more conventional instruments.  The band members specialise in marimbas, African drums, shakers, keyboard and piano.  The songs they play are also of mixed origin being both local and international.  They also have many numbers that have been written by band members. This music is termed Afro-fusion.
