Description

Zimbabwe's foremost Mbira player, Stella Rambisai Chiweshe - "The Queen of Mbira" - blends haunting mbira lines with percussion and call & response singing behind her evocative vocals. She sings and plays songs of liberation, spiritual experience and social commentary. The effect is otherworldly and mesmerizing. Although the haunting thumb-piano known as mbira - or sanza or kalimba - is found in many parts of Africa, Zimbabwe is the source of perhaps the richest mbira traditions - a thousand years of music.
