The main cultural groups in Zimbabwe are the tribes of Shona and the Ndebele. The Shona people were considered to be the founders of the regional empire and the ancient capital city of Zimbabwe. Today, approximately 85 percent of the population identifies itself with this group. Music is highly regarded in Shona culture with rhythms and sounds created on mbira (finger piano), ngoma (drum) and marimba ( wooden xylophone) The Ndebele are renowned for their artistic talent with beautiful wall art adorning their homes. Culturally, the spirit world plays a big role in native Zimbabwean culture, with festivals marking death anniversaries, and reverence towards ancestors. Sadza is a common food item in the households of this region. It is a simple dish made of cornmeal mixed with stew and is often eaten alongside Muboora, a soup preparation of pumpkin leaves that are cooked in a curry. Finally, to beat the heat, don’t forget to try the Maheu, a local energy drink that will instantly revive you!
