It is with great sadness that we share the news of Chiwoniso Maraire’s death on Wednesday in Zimbabwe. Chi, Liemba’s narrator, was a rising star in Zimbabwe’s music scene. Her songs, playing and spirit were inspirational, powerful & beautiful. In the film, she captured the ship’s personality and brought its story to life with her one of a kind vocal talents.  We were enormously lucky to have had the opportunity to work with her. We will miss her and send our sincere condolences to her family and friends.
