Last week a collaboration between Zvembira and Ticha Muzavazi saw one mbira enthusiast win a brand new nyunga nyunga mbira as part of the celebrations of Mbira Month.

Here is what the winner had to say….

Mbira Month, Ticha Muzavazi

Being the Inaugral winner of Zvembira’s Mbira contest, I am the happiest man on earth today after collecting my Mbira from poet and mbira teacher, Trust Mutekwa aka Ticha Muzavazi. Had a tough time in choosing the one from his gallery.

A poet by proffesion, it has always been my dream to one day accompany my poetry with mbira. I enjoy the music of Chiwoniso Maraire and Hope Masike. Courtsey of Zvembira together with Ticha Muzavazi , I now have a mbira. Soon enough i will post a poem accompanied with the mbira ….watch this space.

A lot of thanks to Zvembira

Both Ticha Muzavazi and Zvembira are delighted that we played a part in fulfilling Edward Dzonze’s dream of owning a mbira. Another nyunga nyunga will be on offer again at the end of the month. This time we will make sure that we devise a way to enter the competition if you are not on Facebook. Like before, it is open to entries from any part of the world.

Happy playing and listening!
