Tute Chigamba was born into a family of traditional and spiritual musicians. The son of a master drummer and dancer, Chigamba has kept the traditions of his musical heritage alive so that now many of his own children and grandchildren lead others in carrying on these traditions. A key player at ceremonies during the struggle for independence from 1972-1979, Chigamba’s popularity has since spread not just across Zimbabwe, but throughout the world. He has introduced thousands of people to mbira and now receives students from many countries at his home in Zimbabwe where he continues to compose songs, make mbiras and hold healing ceremonies.
