One more chance to catch Netsayi
Dubbed the 'Queen of Afro-folk and 'Zimbabwe's best kept secret' 'by local papers, Netsayi is thrilled to premier her brand new material on HIFA's Main Stage.
2013 was a breakthrough year for Netsayi, which saw her rock New York alongside some of the world's best musicians, play live on NPR, be photographed by Helena Christensen and wolf-whistled by Bono.
According to Hifa: "This is your last chance to catch Netsayi before their first American tour, which will take in the Celebrate Brooklyn festival and a residency at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art."
Now after three years selling out HIFA's Global Stage, she'll be presenting a new sound alongside an Mbira ensemble (with Jacob and Philip from Vibe Culture) and cellist Jeff Ziegler (from the Grammy Award-winning Kronos Quartet).

With hit songs such as \"Gochi gochi\" and \"Tsviriyo\", he has also attracted major corporate endorsements as the new age musical public figure of choice.
