TIMBILA is a New York-based Afrodelic band that merges traditional music from Zimbabwe and Mozambique with East Village rock. CHARTWELL DUTIRO is a maverick, master mbira player from Zimbabwe with a story that begins in the sacred musical rituals of his home village, passes through the international limelight of the world music years in the company of Thomas Mapfumo and the Blacks Unlimited, and continues today in the U.K..
Chartwell and Timbila began collaborating in 2012, and have developed an entrancing, expansive repertoire together.
As a teenager Chartwell joined the Salvation Army band, and when he moved to the capital he played in a military marching band. From 1986 to 1994 he toured the world with the legendary ‘Thomas Mapfumo and the Blacks Unlimited’ . Since 1994, Chartwell has been based in Britain, performing, recording, teaching, and building bridges through his music.
