Forward Kwenda is an internationally known mbira player and singer from Zimbabwe, who feels he has a very strong spiritual connection through his music. Mbira (aka thumb piano) is the national instrument of Zimbabwe. One of the videos on this episode shows Forward and some friends playing at Great Zimbabwe, the ancient circular ruins that are shrouded in mystery. I have had the good fortune to record with Forward at various times over the years when he was in residency at Williams College. I have released some of that music on two of my SuperString Theory CDs, which are also included on this episode. As you might imagine things are very difficult now in Zimbabwe under covid, so if you enjoy his music please support him by buying his CD which can be found at
