Patience Mudeka was born and raised in Zimbabwe. Many recognize her as a back-up singer and dancer for Dr. Thomas Mapfumo, the Lion of Zimbabwe. Her influences are Chimurenga music, Mbira and Afro-pop. Patience is an accomplished, award winning  dancer, both in Zimbabwe and abroad.  Patience performed and toured with Dr. Thomas Mapfumo for several years, eventually branching off and forming her own band, and recording her critically acclaimed album, Tafadzwa.

P.A.C.E. ▪ Pan African Cultural Exchange
After three decades of studying and performing traditional and contemporary African music, including collaborations with musicians, songwriters and dancers from the African continent, Tucson musician and band leader Mike Olson (Pulse, G-Force Project, Batucaxé, and the Key Ingredients of African Soul) was inspired to take the idea of “cultural exchange” to a higher level. In addition to recording a soon to be released music album that features collaborations spanning the USA to Zimbabwe in southern Africa, Olson and a handful of supporters teamed up in 2012 to form P.A.C.E. The mission of P.A.C.E. is to elevate our community’s awareness and enjoyment of African music, both traditional and contemporary and to cultivate artistic exchanges between well established, and aspiring, African and Tucson musicians.  P.A.C.E. launches its initiative with this October 5 event featuring Zimbabwean singer, songwriter and dancer Patience Mudeka, paired with the local band Key Ingredients of African Soul.
