Zimbabwe: Chiwoniso and Chikwata.263 Collaborate

Chiwoniso gigMbira queen Chiwoniso and mbira-punk rock band chikwata.263 join forces for what has to be one of 2011’s most exciting gigs. Chiwoniso is performing fresh back from tour and collaborating with a punk band for the first time.

Chikwata.263 have been making waves since they burst onto the Zimbabwean music scene at the beginning of this year fusing punk rock and mbira and this show promises to be their most spectacular yet.

The show is being dedicated to the memory of the late great Adam Chisvo, Chiwoniso’s former mbira player and percussionist and one of the legends of Zimbabwean music. Proceeds from the show have been pledged to help the family in this difficult time.
