Simon Mashoko

Focus on the Shona cultural heritage of Mbira music: Simon Mashoko Gwenyambira

When the Wiener Tschuschenkapelle went on tour in Zimbabwe in 1996 they visited Simon Mashoko, the grand master musician on the mbira, at his rural home in Nyika near Masvingo. This encounter was the start of a series of projects and collaborations with Werner Puntigam, Klaus Hollinetz and Michael Pilz.
