Melding the rhythms of Zimbabwe and West Arica with Reggae, Samba, Afrobeat, Funk, Jazz, Cumbia, Disco and Hip Hop, this fusion of styles is intelligently selected, seamlessly blended and brought to you by Kutapira. What started out thirteen years ago as a youth world music initiative has metamorphosized into the crowd-pleasing percussion explosion known today as Kutapira. The name Kutapira means “Sweetness” in the Shona language of Zimbabwe, a fitting title for a band that plays a fusion of Zimbabwean marimba with West African and Afro-Cuban percussion. For years they performed exclusively as a mallet swinging, skin-slapping quintet but now, in their latest evolutionary form, they feature vocals and electric bass.
