Organization History

In 1999, co-founders Randy McIntosh and Amy Stewart McIntosh combined their six private marimba students and a mutual vision of a multicultural music school and opened the Kutandara Center. In 2017, the Kutandara Center became a nonprofit organization, known as Moon & Stars Foundation and is currently working to take the music school in New directions. As one of only a handful of Zimbabwean music and culture centers in the country, Moon & Stars Foundation dba Kutandara, provides multicultural music experiences for youth and adults, allowing participants to deepen their understanding of themselves, their communities, and other cultures through music lessons, classes, workshops, demonstrations and concerts.

Testimonials

"I think the most special and surprising memory I had of my son was the first time he performed with his marimba class. They'd been in class and working on different scenarios and so he took the microphone and got up and introduced himself and the group and said, 'Hey how's everybody doing out there?' I thought, 'Oh, that's my son!' I was so proud, and today he still uses his wonderful public speaking skills and I give credit to those experiences when he was very young."
