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

Origin[edit]

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').

Festivals[edit]

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