Tichawona Mashawa

Born in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, Tichawona is one of the most imaginative and captivating musicians emerging from Africa today. His music equally embraces the deepest traditions of Mbira and Nyunga-Nyunga (thumb piano) music as well as the intense dance groove of the African Metropolis.

Amid a busy teaching schedule, in which he passes on his passion and skills to local youth, Tichawona has also been one of eight talented musicians selected to be a part of the Culture Train Regional Tour 2016, sharing his music and stories with remote Queensland as part of the Queensland Governments Multicultural Month celebrations.
