Naniso Media is a young start-up with a big vision, born from our experience of growing up in Zimbabwe and raising children in the UK.
Guided by the motto “Imagine it. Create it. Inspire”, our objective is to use storytelling, education and events in a fun an imaginative way to bring children closer the rich cultural and historical heritage of Zimbabwe and of Africa, whatever their background and wherever they may be in the world.
We are the creators of Naniso and Shinga, who happen upon a mbira (thumb piano) which ignites a curiosity in their Zimbabwean legacy. With the help of their friends, they weave through the tapestry of their inheritance to stand tall and proud in their true identity. Your young ones can find out more about the twins and their friends at www.nanisoshinga.com.
We have self-published The Mysterious Melody, the debut children’s book by SP K-Mushambi. A picture book for younger readers is on the way, as well as additional books about Naniso and Shinga! We are aiming to do a lot more with these characters, and to make related content available online and via mobile applications, so watch this space!
In working to achieve our goals, we are passionate about working with other Zimbabwean and African artists who share the same vision that we have.
