Hailing from Zimbabwe, Mokoomba sets dance floors ablaze with their unique mix of traditional Tonga, Luvale, and Nyanja rhythms; pan-African music cultures; and generous dashes of rap, ska, soukous, and Afro-Cuban music. Since winning the Music Crossroads Inter-regional Festival Competition in Malawi (2008), Mokoomba has toured more than 40 countries on five continents, and performed at internationally known festivals and venues including the legendary Apollo Theater in Harlem.
