Following the Opening Ceremony, Nyemwerero will set the tone of the festival with the dynamic sound of Musekiwa Chingodza on mbira, joined by Zivanai Masango and other members of ZiMBiRA! Nyemwerero (“the way you smile”) has come together for Zimfest 2016 to feature Musekiwa Chingodza and share his mbira music and songs. Musekiwa will be joined by his long-time students Catherine Hunziker on mbira and David Schaldach on bass guitar as well as guest artist Zivanai Masango on guitar.
