Mokoomba was born in 2001, at the border of Zimbabwe and the Zambia, where the Zambesi River meets the legendary Victoria Falls. Based in the Tonga culture, and guided by vocalist and percussionist Mathias Muzaza, Mokoomba has been called “quite simply the most impressive band Zimbabwe has produced in recent memory” by Afropop Worldwide’s Banning Eyre. Mokoomba exploded onto the world stage with exceptional energy on the 2012 international debut Rising Tide.

 

The band’s six members — Mathias Muzaza (lead vocalist), Ndaba Coster Moyo (Drummer, backing vocals), Trustworth Samende (Lead Guitar, backing vocals) Donald Moyo, (keyboards, backing vocals), Miti Mugande, (percussion & backing vocals) and Abundance Mutori (bass, backing vocals) — grew up as friends in the Chinotimba township.

 

Their most recent release, Luyando, is made up of thoughtful, introverted acoustic songs, as well as joyous, life-affirming dance tunes, offering up essential life-lessons from their corner of Africa to the whole world.
