Traditional mbira music has been proven for centuries to heal and uplift our spirits through its joyful rhythms and melodies.

We are available to perform as a duo (2 mbiras), trio (mbiras with percussion) or full six-piece group.


Performances can include mbira, singing, clapping and dance and is often accompanied by the traditional rattles known as hosho. The audience is encouraged to participate. Our presentation can also include discussion the context and culture of the music.
