Norton mbira songbird, Florence Nyamazana, who is also known as ‘The Lioness,’ in the music circles, has released a 10 track album titled: Matama Matsvene Nembira.
Mbira is one of the most celebrated ancient music in Zimbabwe and is commonly performed at a number of traditional ceremonies.
Nyamazana says her new offering is set to excite many mbira lovers.
She follows directly in the heels of such mbira greats as Mbuya Stella Chiweshe, Hope Masike and the late Chiwoniso Maraire, who have managed to market the rich Zimbabwean mbira music on the international scene.
Nyamazana developed an interest in mbira music at a tender age and says the 10 track album addresses social issues that affect people in their day to day lives.
The album features tracks such as: Tarirayi, Kuparadza Nhaka, Marwadzo, Jesu Wangu and Dai.
Some of her albums include: Ngatitambei, Tisadzokere Shure and Gwindingwi.
Her music has also been well received in Uganda, Zambia, Ghana, South Africa and Botswana.
