Remastered From Analog Tapes!

Piranha Musik is very excited to announce that 33 1/3 years after the debut international release of beloved artist Stella Chiweshe, they will be making this groundbreaking album available once again. Remastered from analog tapes, Ambuya! will come out on 180g vinyl, including a 1988 "John Peel Session" as a bonus.

Released in 1987, Ambuya! was the album that broke through Stella to the world, pioneering and breaking down boundaries in music: she worked with the British world-indie legends 3 Mustaphas 3 and played an electric instead of a traditional acoustic Mbira. Not many voice-mbira-dzavadzimu-marimba-hosho-electric bass-and-drums albums had been recorded up to that point.

In addition to the reissue, Stella Chiweshe is working on a project that will take her back to the hills of her homeland, an hour northeast of Harare. There she has begun construction work for the Chivanhu Center in order to preserve and deepen the traditional Mbira and Shona culture and to carry it on to future generations, be it nationally or beyond Zimbabwe's borders. A crowdfunding campaign launches today and will run until December 22, to help finance the infrastructure on-site.
