The Chinyakare Ensemble perfoms music and dance of Zimbabwe. A family of musicians, dancers and teachers committed to preserving and sharing traditional Zimbabwean culture, Chinyakare presents an electrifying performance of the traditional dance, music, and culture of Zimbabwe and Southern Africa. The music (played on mbira, ngoma, marimbas, and chipendani), songs, and dance weave colorful stories that show scenes from everyday life, while teaching important life lessons, such as goal-setting, perseverance, and thankfulness. Founded in 2001, Chinyakare provides audiences with a glimpse of the beauty, excitement, and spirit of traditional African dance and song.
