Tich Maredza Band at Union Summer

Swooping down from the vast Zimbabwean plains, Tichaona Maredza, a guitar in one hand, a drum in the other, and a mbira in his teeth, arrived in Toronto in 2008. As a singer, multi-instrumentalist, and composer, he quickly formed a group in December 2009. The Tich Maredza Band hit the circuit hard, veterans in a matter of months. Tich's music, while rooted in Zimbabwean traditional styles, has a contemporary flair. A drummer and guitarist, his compositions have a rhythmic drive, melodic intelligence, and lyrical messages of challenge and hope. Indoors, outdoors, in a concert hall or dance hall, The Tich Maredza Band puts smiles on faces and feet on the floor.
