Music is a powerful force that connects everyone from all cultures. We can share music when we can’t share language. Traditional and contemporary music in Zimbabwe is an important thread in the cultural fabric of the people. Traditionally drums, mbira, hosho, clapping and voice have been the most common ways that music is shared. The mbira is a traditional musical instrument played from ancient times. The songs passed on from one person to another have most often been first heard in a dream; the dreamer then “composes” the song. There are songs for social and ceremonial purposes, which have evolved from a deep and rich history.
