Stella Chiweshe

Stella Chiweshe is probably Zimbabwe's internationally most prolific performer, being a prominent star in the 1.0 days of "World Music" in the 1980es and early 1990es. Since then, things have been getting a bit quiet around her, which is currently changing for good, since Stella is still a breathtakingly powerful and highly spiritual performer. Her traditional "Mbira" music (the word is categorizing the instrument, the style and an entire culture) is a medium to establish contact with the spirits of the deceased ancestors and thus also able to bring about community among the listeners. In September 2018, Glitterbeat released Stella Chiweshe's long-expected new album "Kasahwa", a collection of her early African singles.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
