Tich Maredza

Performed in Sofar Toronto

The Tich Maredza Band plays a fusion of Zimbabwean contemporary and traditional rhythms powered by messages of inspiration, hope, love, celebration, and awareness. With original songs composed by JUNO Award-winning musician Tich Maredza, the music features rhythmic drive, melodic intelligence, and lyrical messages of challenge and hope based on Maredza’s experiences not only as a musician but as an immigrant. Backing Maredza up are Gordin Mapika (drums and vocals), Larry Lewis (guitar), and Tich Gombiro (bass). The band has appeared at festivals across Ontario including Afrofest, as well as accompanying and sharing the stage with visiting African stars including Zimbabwean legends Thomas Mapfumo and Oliver Mtukudzi.
