"I think Liemba is one of the best documentaries I've ever seen.
It was an amazing balance of atmosphere, stories, texture, political history and music. Visually and sonically beautiful, It was direct and moving."

"Really great…. truly an inspiring work of art."
Harry Bliss, Burlington

"I was captivated by the insight into the history of the boat and its purpose as well as the adept way you portrayed the very meaningful human story of the various users. It is always fascinating to learn of something unique and powerful like your story of Liemba. The production - both sound and filming - was great. I was left wishing the story continued."

Chiwoniso Maraire narrates Liemba

Zimbabwean musician & Cumbancha Records recording artist, Chiwoniso Maraire narrates Liemba. Chiwoniso has been performing singing and playing marimba since she was 11. Her 3rd solo album, Rebel Woman, was released worldwide in 2009 and has risen to #1 on the World Music Charts Europe, #1 on iTunes World section and #1 in Amazon’s MP3 International-Africa section. The title track from the album has also been nominated Best Contemporary African Song by Museke Online Africa Awards. Banning Eyre described Chiwoniso on NPR as “one of the most compelling young voices in today’s African Music.” She has also performed and collaborated with artist from around the world in as diverse as styles as Sinead O’Connor and Kris Kristoffersen. We are grateful that Chiwoniso has brought her soulful, rich voice to the Liemba narration, providing the same passion to the voice of Liemba that she brings to her music. You can learn more about Chiwoniso at her website (www.chiwoniso.com) or better yet, go see her perform live.
