    Dzivaguru!: Drumming and Dance at a Sacred Shona Shrine
    Dzivaguru!: Drumming and Dance at a Sacred Shona Shrine
Dzivaguru, also known as Chimbikiza, located in the rural Chiweshe area of Zimbabwe, is a sacred Shona shrine where mediums of ancient ancestor spirits and their families have lived near-Stone Age life since before living memory. No recording equipment of any kind is allowed inside the shrine, but the Dzivaguru residents in these videos came just outside the boundaries of the shrine to be documented drumming, singing and dancing for this DVD. This is not professional grade video, but enjoy the rare peek into deep Shona culture! Some of these dances are virtually extinct in Zimbabwe today. Recorded 16 February 2010. [Total time: 91:39]
