INSINGIZI, a trio from Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, performs a-cappella singing, traditional chants, and hand percussion with choreography. Their first CD, Voices of Southern Africa, sold more than 250,000 copies in North America. In 2010 they received the France Musique World Music Award.
In contacting the group, we discovered their hometown of Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, is also the home of Mandaza Augustine Kandemwa, another of our speakers. We appreciate the generosity of Vusa Mkhaya Ndlovu for contributing their music to the soundtrack of In Search of the Great Song.
