Chigwaya is the traditional Shona mbira song used to call mermaid spirits, which bring health, wealth and protection. The song will be taught in the style learned from Endiby Makope (and also taught by Patience Chaitezvi). It can be sung a capella or with mbira (see separate Zimfest mbira workshop).
