Solo Performances

"Saungweme", the sound of bees, a musical performance experimenting with the conflicting approaches between preserving and advancing the traditional music of Zimbabwe and inciting dialogue around colonialism, capitalism, elitism and the spirituality of the Zimbabwean people.

Dza Gogo

"Dza Gogo", Shona for "Grandmother's songs", which are taught down from generation to generation, is a project that is centered on Zimbabwe's ancient music and dance styles. 


Session Work

Since 2001 I have worked as a session performer representing different dance companies, theatre companies and bands in Zimbabwe and different parts of the globe.


I have been collaborating with both local and international artists since 2008 and have also spear headed a number of international collaborations both in ZImbabwe and abroad.  I love collaborations because they are an opportunity for skills and knowledge transfer. Collaborations thrive in unity regardless of race, nationality, religion, sex, age and having participated in them is a huge honor
