Sho Madjozi and her cousin put together something super awesome and special for Zimbabwean Culture Week.
Being a part of a continent that is so diverse and rich in culture is truly a blessing some of us often forget.
Briefly.co.za saw how Sho, the princess of African culture, decided to do her bit for Zimbabwean Culture Week.
Sho is one artist who embraces the diversity of the African continent wholeheartedly – it is something unique to her and something many respect greatly.
So, Sho and her cousin managed to find a proudly Zimbabwean instrument called the mbira and made a little tune.
The mbira originally came from South America and is made from hardwood soundboard with a series of thin metal keys attached to the surface. It has been played for over 1 000 years within the Shona community, the skill having been passed down over generations. It is played at various Shona wedding ceremonies, weddings and social gatherings.
Using the mbira, Sho and her cousin managed to make a hella lit beat. Sho’s cousin taught himself how to play it and they mixed the historical sound into a mode beat – it is lit!
Sharing their creation on social media, Sho showed her support to the Zimbabwean culture.
Fans were blown away by Sho and her cousin's inclusiveness and what an awesome beat they managed to cook up on the fly. Many Zim fans thanked Sho for showing their culture and heritage some love.
