Performance by Queen Mashie


Sandra Mashiringo a.k.a Queen Mashie was born on March 10 1982,in Gutu, Masvingo, Zimbabwe. She started singing early in class four as a member of the school choir but her progression was interrupted when she joined high school that had no music teacher. She joined the catholic church choir, instead, where she excelled and represented in music competition.

After high school she moved to Harare to join her elder brother and accomplished musician ,Andy Brown, who convinced her to ditch the computer studies she had gone to pursue for a career in music because he thought she had a talent from hearing her singing around the house and in 2002 she joined Andy Brown and Storm band where she got her musical experience. She later joined the Vintage Band as a lead singer with that veteran guitarist Mdhara Timi Makaya.

In 2006 she moved to Nairobi Kenya to pursue her musical career. She worked with Nyota Safi Band and later joined The Tutu Band and was signed with Sound Africa and recorded her first album Kare Kare (long time ago). She did collaborations with different artists from Kenya and Zimbabwe, and produce her second album CD/DVD Queen Mashie Collaboration.

Queen Mashie also performed at the Sauti Za Busara Festival 2008 with Afrodynamics ,a composite of various musicians from different parts of the world (France, Mozambique, Senegal, Austria and Zimbabwe) With the influence from Chiwoniso (mbira maestro),Queen Mashie started playing mbira (the traditional instrument widely played in Zimbabwe, Congo (known as Likembe and other African counties) in 2008.

She composed and recorded her first mbira song on Kare Kare album and on her upcoming album Mbijana Mbijana.

Nairobi Live Concert: with Michael Ongaro, May 9 2013 @ Tree House

Date: May 9, 2013-05-03
Venue: Tree House
Time: 8.30 – 11.00 pm
Entry: Free

Michel Ongaro, a humorous and witty artist whose skills span across a wide music spectrum, was born and raised in Nairobi Kenya. A singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and music coach, Michel has been active in the music scene since 2002.

Michel began making music at a tender age with makeshift percussion instruments that he’d make for himself. Having been rendered blind at the age of two, he learnt to overcome this challenge to emerge an artist that is refined in both skill and character.

His musical inspiration comes from artists such as Cesaria Evora, Djelimadi Tounkara, Salif Keita, Franco Makiadi, Diblo Dibala, Africando, Muungano choir, Lee Ritenour, Bin Crosby and many others.

A cancer survivor, Michel is a source of enlightenment and inspiration to many. With his positive energy and talent, he makes beautiful music that borrows largely from his rich African heritage and blends spectacularly with other music genres from other continents to create quite a charming blend.
