Siyaya (sometimes known as Siyaya Arts) are a music, dance and theatre group from Makokoba, Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.


Siyaya formed in 1989 and were originally known as Nostalgic Actors and Singers Alliance (NASA). They started with 5 members and were led by Mike Sobiko. The members of the group have changed a lot over time, with many former members going on to other, similar projects. The line-up now consists of 13 members under the leadership of Saimon Mambazo Phiri. On their 10th anniversary they changed their name to Siyaya (meaning 'on the move').


Siyaya have performed all over Africa and Europe including some major UK festivals such as WOMAD, Live 8 and Glastonbury.
