"For the Tonga people like me, there is something deeply biblical about the word MULONGA, yet it is a modern story too. One of massive but unshared technology. One of plentiful water but perpetual drought."

A Tribute to Simon Mashoko Gwenyambira
Wednesday, 13 February 2002 00:00
When five Austrian artists visited Siachilaba in 1997 to take part in the “NYAMINYAMI Festival Celebrating Tonga Culture”, they made a stop over at Simon Mashoko´s place near Masvingo. Following this encounter with the great master mbira player they came up with an acclaimed foto/video/sound installation at the Gallery Delta in Harare in January 2002. Werner Puntigam, Klaus Hollinetz and Michael Pilz will present their impressions and installation again at Gallery Habari in Vienna from 26th February (opening 7 p.m.) onwards (and in Graz, Linz, Munich and other places later).
