Still working on that hot first release.



Mshindi Ngoma pronounced (Mm- Shin- Dee; Nn- Go-Mah) is a Philadelphia based Drum Ensemble. The group performs rhythms from the African Diaspora and the Caribbean as well as original compositions. Highly tuned African percussion drums at various levels gives this Pan African Drum Ensemble its unique style and arrangement. The group name Mshindi Ngoma is Ki Swahili, and translates to read Champion Drums or Drums of the Champion. This is accurate because many of the rhythms the Ensemble performs are related to a storyline that pertains to the life of a Champion.

Currently the group is preparing to release its debut CD called “Mshindi Ngoma Volume 1: Kiburi – Pride.” The mission of their first composition is to make the group more available to the public, as they believe their unique sound and message is very different from the usual top ten African rhythms. Upon completion, the goal of Mshindi Ngoma is to continue to share, and celebrate African music from the diaspora with others on a local and global level.

The members of Mshindi Ngoma have been involved with Mwangazi (Founder/Artistic Director) as students for many years. The group was officially formed in the summer of 96’ as a service program of its principal non profit organization-- dedicated to persevering African Cultural Art forms. During the summer of 2003 their presentation reached a new high when a tour group was established. Since then returning students have joined the group and eagerly participated.

The ensemble currently consist of both males and females performers whom contribute to all forms of African cultural expressions, which they call “Pan African Edutainment.” Group member’s artistic skills range from African dance, Conscious Hip Hop, Poetry, Art illustration and Stilt Walking.

Group members live a life of African culture on and off the stage. The performances of Mshindi Ngoma are very educational and often performances are infused with components of (M.V.S.) an African Martial Art System. This is truly a pleasure to see, and is always an audience favorite.

Currently the group continues to conduct school residences and perform at a host of public and private events.
