Wherever they are and with or without 220 volts, Stella Chiweshe and band are delivering the goods. Linked by the hypnotic weft & warp of Mbira (thumb piano) Music which lies at the heart of Shona spirit culture, her lyrics cross the line between the magical and the everyday. With the kick of a traditional western rhythm section or the rippling liquid shuffles of hosho, drums and marimbas, Stella is more than a woman in a mans world riding high in the World Music charts. Nine live favourites of Stella and her band sung in Shona, including three titles never released on a record before.
