Kate Griffin & Matchume Zango

Two people with musical instruments sitting on a beach.

Kate Griffin (UK banjo player) and Matchume Zango (Mozambique multi-instrumentalist) are forging a new cross-cultural collaboration celebrating the universal power of traditional music. They both bring echoes of their respective traditions to a vibrant new sound full of world rhythms, contemporary song-writing and joy.

Following the release of their debut EP Tchopo, recorded in Maputo 2022, Matchume is making his debut performances in the UK in July 2024. Their touring show will feature Matchume’s arsenal of percussion including timbila, xitende, mbira, and congas, Kate’s banjo, and a supporting trio of Evan Carson on drums, Ben Evans on Bass, and Ford Collier on low whistle and guitar.
