Stella Chiweshe (also Stella Rambisai Chiweshe, Stella Rambisai Chiweshe Nekati, or Stella Nekati Chiweshe, born 8 July 1946 in Mujumi Village, Mhondoro, Zimbabwe) is a Zimbabwean musician. She is internationally known for her singing and playing of the mbira dzavadzimu, a traditional instrument of the Shona people of Zimbabwe. She is one of the few female players of the instrument, which she learned to play from 1966 to 1969 when even fewer females played the instrument.

Neither innovation makes her a rebel, just a Shona revisionist adapting conventional wisdom to transcultural reality: by replacing the customary shakers with a band-another woman's mbira, two marimbas, and unobtrusive bass-and-traps for world-dance accents-she takes a gentle music out of the village without downplaying where it's coming from.
As you can hear on the last four tracks of this CD, Chiweshe experiments with a fusion of rock and traditional Zimbabwean styles.
