Zimbabwe Musicians Union (ZIMU)

Genre : Cultural association
Status : Public administration
Principal country concerned : Column : Music

Zimbabwe Musicians Union (ZIMU) was launched on 11 November 2014 at the Book Cafe in Harare.

The banding together of musicians to form ZIMU is seen by many as long overdue, since the retreat of the Zimbabwe Union of Musicians (ZUM) into inactivity in recent years.

The interim board addressed a number of music industry professionals including vocalists, instrumentalists, and promoters. The new union is inviting musicians and music industry professionals to join in the hope of increasing numbers, and thus leverage to meet the needs of artists in the community.
