Piwai: Her Music, Her Motivation


Piwai has masterfully created her own hypnotic sound that layers rabi (vocal based rhythms), jazz, blues, traditional folk and reggae on top of the traditional sacred sounds of the 3,000 year old mbira instrument. Her songs capture the delicate aspects of life and explore the wide realm of the human condition.

Piwai is a cultural ambassador for several non-profits in the Bay Area and San Diego. In 2014 she was recognized by the Mayor of Long Beach for distinguished service towards cultural awareness, spreading peace and unity through the harmony of music.

She promotes music across generations and boundaries. Using music and a connection point, she’s taught music, singing, dance and drumming through the Center for World Music and The Young Musicians Academy in the greater San Diego Area.
