Yorira Ngoma: promoting Zim music in the UK

WHAT a started as a simple idea of a group of colleagues of similar ilk and interests has seen the birth of Yorira Ngoma & Let’s Dance To The Music, a feast that sees a musical explosion of varied genres and artists mainly from Zimbabwe.
And the movement is picking up pace with the inaugural concert held at the glitzy Mama Jumbe’s Bar in East London on Saturday. Headlining on the night was Zee Guveya & the Heritage Survival Band.
Guveya fronts the exceptionally talented traditional rhythm exponents hailing from Harare. Popularly known as Zee, the versatile guitarist has developed his own brand of Afro-fusion drawing from his wealth of experience having worked for a number of years with the Chimurenga guru Thomas Mapfumo’s Blacks Unlimited. To this very day Mapfumo calls on Zee to add his inimitable licking of the rhythm guitar on live shows. His early stint with Mapfumo saw him record five albums and touring Africa, Europe and North America.
