“A Hip Dance Band”-Edmonton Journal

“..Hypnotic African rhythms, syncopated vocal harmonies, significant reggae infusion.. This band is fun.” – Rootsfan

The Mbira Renaissance Band will have any audience on its feet and dancing! Based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada , the band delivers an afro-fusion, Thomas Mapfumo, Andy Brown and Bhundu Boys inspired sound that pays homage to the rich, ancient, musical genre of mbira music which has its roots in Zimbabwe. The members make up an eclectic group; drawing on their musical backgrounds in jazz, rock, traditional Zimbabwean music and reggae.

The Mbira Renaissance Band is supported by the Edmonton Arts Council and is a 2017 Edmonton Music Award Nominee.
