Martha Thom graces Mbira dzeMuninga as an impeccably skilled traditional dancer, hosho player and singer. Her energy and skill is hard to match. She began performing in her primary level of school and continued to dance in school performing groups through 1992 when she then joined Shingayi Traditional Dance Group in Harare. She has taught student groups and private lessons at the College of Music. In 2003, Thom joined Chiwoniso and Vibe Culture and toured Zimbabwe, South Africa, and Djibouti. She has been performing with Sweet Calabash in Harare for the past two years. This is her first visit to North America.
