Zimbamoto is a 5-piece Afro-Fusion ensemble led by Canada’s foremost virtuoso mbira and marimba player, Kurai Mubaiwa.
Featuring some of Vancouver’s best “world” musicians, Zimbamoto mixes the traditional music of Zimbabwe with electric grooves and heavy beats, they create a hypnotic sound that is uniquely built for the dance floor.

The music is rooted in the classical repertoire of the mbira, a metal-tined ‘thumb piano’ that first appeared in the Zambezi River valley nearly 1,000 years ago, that is traditionally used to invoke ancestral spirits. Mubaiwa has been playing the instrument since childhood, where he would walk from village to village while playing, something he still does today in urban Vancouver! Tambai is their debut album (released Nov.2017).
