Artist Profiles: Siyaya

The Shona name ‘Siyaya’ means ‘We are on the move’. This high-energy group of musicians, percussionists, vocalists and dancers have offered up some remarkable performances in recent years. Their shows encompass universal themes and traditional stories, interwoven with a passion and a level of humanity deeply rooted in Zimbabwean culture.

The group originated in Bulawayo where they have constantly worked with young people through schools and community programs, nurturing talent and proving that the arts can continue to nourish and sustain communities during political upheavals and instability.
