Dumisani Abraham Maraire, Mai Chi Maraire, Chiwoniso Maraire, Nyunga Nyunga Mbira – Tichazomuona
- Release details
Nyami Nyami Records presents a reissue of a rare gem from the Gramma Records catalog , the historic Zimbabweean label. Dumisani Maraire, the leading creator of modern mbira, settled in the USA in the late 60s where he popularized the traditional music of the Shona people.
Tichazomuona is the first album he recorded in liberated Zimbabwe, in 1986, with his wife Maichi and daughter Chiwoniso.
You can hear the very young singer on lead vocals on the title track, long before she went on to perform solo on the international stage.
We launched Nyami Nyami with her last recording Zvichapera and are happy to also release now her very first.
