DzePasi is a Shona word which means ‘from the earth’. This is a workshop on Zimbabwean traditional music, the Mbira instrument and dance. All are welcome to learn to sing and dance to traditional folk songs of Zimbabwe. Led by Mary Anibal and Tich Maredza.  

About Mary Anibal

Mary Anibal’s music inspires change – it comes from the desire for societal transformation. The Afro-fusion artist’s music blends folk and traditional music. Her vision is to build on the legacy of legends like Stella ‘Ambuya’ Chiweshe and Chiwoniso Maraire who left a void in the industry for someone with their sound and energy to bring hope into people’s lives. Her solo career launched in 2020 with the release of her single ‘Bhonzo Muderere’. Following this, she released three more, namely ‘Gogoride’, ‘Mvura’ and ‘Narini’. Mary Anibal is one of the few female artists who have mastered mbira.  

About Tich Maredza

Tichaona Maredza’s music, while rooted in Zimbabwean traditional styles, has a contemporary flair, narrated and sung in Shona and English, his music chronicles the struggles and triumphs of his journey, in music and life. He is the leader of the Tich Maredza Band and a member of the JUNO award winning Okavango African Orchestra.
