One of the most existing talents in African music today, Chiwoniso performs entrancing and uplifting songs with ancient soul and modern spirit. Backed by the mesmerizing interlocking melodies of the mbira and the deep grooves of an all-star lineup featuring some of Zimbabwe and South Africa’s top musicians, Chiwoniso’s voice resounds with defiant strength and profound tenderness. Her new recording, Rebel Woman (2008), has just been released by Cumbancha.
Local presentation of Chiwoniso is made possible by volunteer labor, small financial contributions from hundreds of patrons of The Sanctuary For Independent Media and support from the New York State Council on the Arts.
We are committed to lowering the barriers to access for events at The Sanctuary for Independent Media.
