Rest in peace Chiedza Brown: The Mbira Journey

Hector Rufaro Mugani

It’s sad that a young brilliant, sweet child is forced to end her life with the people surrounding her. I hope the Zimbabwean and USA child protection will do an intensive investigation. Chiedza was a brilliant soul, took only the good parts of Chiwoniso Maraire and Andy Brown. She was the next mbira-star as she had become arguably a better mbira player than the Chiwoniso. I am at a loss for words.

Rest in Peace Chiedza Brown

 

Mai 

Sometimes I imagine I hear your voice 
In the trees whispering
Ahh… Ahh…


Mai, fambai zvakanaka
Mai, tichazomuona

Forever I remember your loving smile
Sunshine to my eyes
You had a spirit so full of joy
Ahh, the sweet surprise
I still find myself searching for your face 
Though I know you’re gone
And its so hard to say goodbye
But I know it won’t be long
Mmm, til we ‘re together
I know it won’t be long
Mai, fambai zvakanaka
Mai, tichazomuwona
Sometimes I imagine I hear your voice
In the trees whispering

You had this way of understanding
Anything we say
Time was there whenever we needed
Oh anything we said
We search the whole world over for your smile
Though we know you’re gone
You will always be in our hearts
Oh, it won’t be long
No-no, till we’re together
No, it won’t be long
Mai, fambai zvakanaka
Mai, tichazomuwona
I imagine I hear your voice
Mai, tichazomuona
Oh….
Mmm…
Mai, fambai zvakanaka
Mai, tichazomuwona

 

 

I hope you are with your loving parents
