Album Notes
Kunzwana is now Judith Juma, and her Daughter Spiwe. Below is the original group description:

Judith Juma and Rhoda Dzomba have been performing together as Kunzwana Mbira Group in Zimbabwe since 1983. They became popular through their performances at traditional ceremonies, and have just begun to reach a wider audience. Kunzwana Mbira Group is special because it is rare to find two women with such an exceptional talent who have bonded to perform traditional mbira music. Kunzwana Mbira Group recently expanded in 1998 with Judith Juma's children who have grown up inspired by the traditional mbira music. Her sons Dingiswayo and Dingani, with her daughter Spiwe, alternate playing shakers, mbira, dancing, and singing during performance.

This recording presents the traditional melodies of the Shona mbira sung with lyrics that address some of the pressing issues that face many Zimbabweans today. In the songs Ndamba Kuudzwa and Shamhu YaMambo, Judith Juma is speaking through the spirit of her great grandfather, Sekuru Nyati.
