Stella Rambisai Chiweshe is known The Queen of Mbira Music from Zimbabwe. In this rare London gig as part of a short UK tour celebrating Refugee Week (www.refugeeweek.org.uk) produced in association with Platforma (www.platforma.org.uk) and Konimusic (www.konimusic.co.uk) Stella will play and sing a range of her best loved songs.
Stella’s long solo career has established her as one of the most original artists on the contemporary African scene, using popular music to show the depth and power of her traditional spiritual music at home and abroad.
“Her expert mbira playing is matched only by her pained vocals which are always given a full-throated delivery that achieves an exhilarating intensity”
