Biography:
TIMBILA - Afrodelic Xylophone Funk from Zimbabwe, Mozambique and the East Village! The players have studied spiritually-charged mbira (Shona thumb piano) music in Zimbabwe, and also the wild, beautiful, surreal buzzing xylophone music of Mozambique—timbila! But their own roots are mostly rock ‘n roll. The grooves are deep, the sounds magical, and the vocals—in English, Shona, and Chopi—sweetly harmonized. Timbila’s stage show includes choreographed moves by two of the hottest African dancers in New York—all in tune with the band’s mission to make roots culture relevant to a new generation of Americans.
