KUNZWANA is a non-profit-making organisation which fosters the practice and study of indigenous musics in Zimbabwe through the promotion of the work of performing artists and instrument makers for fair reward and the development of music research projects for educational purposes.
The aim of KUNZWANA is to encourage the highest artists standards in Zimbabwean music and to provide artists and instrument makers with fair reward for the work they do. KUNZWANA began informally in 1987 with research projects, workshops on Zimbabwean music for children and teachers and tours for musicians. It was formalised as a Trust in February 1991.Today, there are four trustees: Keith Goddard, Fiona Lloyd, Phillip Marira and Debbie Metcalfe. The name KUNZWANA comes from the Shona word nzw(an)a which means listening, hearing and understanding one another.
