Cândido Salomão Zango, also known as “Matchume Zango,”  has dedicated himself to Mozambican traditional music and dance since the age of six. He is currently regarded as one of the new masters of the timbila.

Over the past fifteen years, he has toured the world as a musician and composer of traditional, experimental and fusion music. As an ambassador of Mozambican music and culture, he has collaborated widely.

Guitarist with award-winning band Mokoomba, Trust Samende is known for his virtuosity in both electric lead and acoustic guitars. Mozambican drummer Djibra Mussa is a longstanding member of Timbila Muzimba created in 1997. He has since toured extensively with Matchume and is one of Mozambique’s finest drummers.

Swiss bass player and violinist Matthias Abächerli is the musical director of FOREST JAM Southern Africa - a non profit organisation; his list of musical collaborators is long and impressive including Madala Kunene.
