Sweet Sounds of Reggae, Funk, Latin Jazz, Samba, Cumbia, Disco and Hip Hop
What started thirteen years ago as a youth world music initiative has metamrphosized into the crowd pleasing percussion explosion known today as Kutapira!

The name Kutapira means "sweetness" in the Shona language of Zimbabwe, a fitting title for a band that plays a fusion of Zimbabwean marimba with West African and Afrocuban percussion and more.

This highly stylized marimba fusion consists of some contemporary Zimbabwean tunes but the majority of the music is composed and arranged by Kutapira and inspired by genres like Reggae, Funk, Latin Jazz, Samba, Cumbia, Disco and Hip Hop. For years they performed exclusively as a mallet swinging, skin-slapping quintet but now, in their latest evolutionary form, feature guitar, horns and vocals.
