The eternal mbira legend, Chiwoniso Maraire was just 37 years old when she died in Harare almost two years ago. But her artistry will continue to be a true blessing for this world.

She left a great legacy and inspired so many people and artists around the globe with Zimbabwean mbira music.

Her both solo albums, “Ancient voices” and “Rebel Woman”, were huge successes and made her tour the world promoting an instrument she redefined for the modern world.

Recently, a new record label Nyami Nyami released “Zvichapera”, a track which Chiwoniso recorded some weeks before she died. Chiwoniso yet again performs with virtuosity, and yet again explains why she was called the “Mbira queen”.
