WALTER WANYANYA

Festival Director: Jacaranda Music Festival (Zimbabwe)

Walter started playing bass guitar at the age of 15 under the guidance and help of the music team at Celebration Church in Harare Zimbabwe. He went on to play for Celebration Choir and was involved in many aspects in music including tours to America and the region.

After 15 years of active involvement with Celebration Choir he then took a back seat to concentrate on business and other ventures. As a result of his strong foundation in music and business, Walter was moved to develop many aspects in the music industry as a whole, this led to the setting up of a company that is involved in promotions, events, management, production and marketing of music and the arts.

The company has facilitated tours to Germany, South Africa, Namibia, Botswana South Africa and is set to export Zimbabwean music and the arts packaged in a world class manner but keeping the identity of its Zimbabwean roots. Ngoma Nehosho has produced over 20 world class music showcases under the Ngoma Nehosho Live Sessions banner. Walter through Ngoma Nehosho partnered with Hugh Masekela and Oliver Mtukudzi to embark on various projects that have seen many artists working grow into world class stage acts such as Shai Shai, Victor Kunonga, Bryan K, Mokoomba to name just a few. Ngoma Nehosho will hold its first music Festival this year in Harare that will headline Hugh Masekela, MOKOOMBA, Oliver Mtukudzi, Black Coffee and this festival is set to be one of the notable festivals on the Festival Circuit in the region.
