Beef stir-fry with peppers by Womad 2014 guest Abundance Mutori of Mokoomba

Bassist Abundance Mutori of the Zimbabwean band Mokoomba is bound to brew up a musical stew when the band play at Womad in March (dates below), but he's also happy to offer this, the recipe for a favourite meal.

Mutori, age 23, is currently living in Harare, Zimbabwe but "I grew up in small town called Victoria Falls also known by the local name Mosi-oa-Tunya which means the smoke the thunders in the BaTonga language.

"The Victoria Falls is a majestic waterfall on the Zambezi river and is a major tourist attraction as well as a UNESCO World Heritage site."

His parents are educators (his father an ameteur bas player also), he has four sublings who are still in schol and speaks Batonga, Luvale, Nyanja, Shona, Ndebele, English.

"We are super excited to be a part of WOMAD NZ and to come to New Zealand," he says " and love the fact that it brings together artists and audiences from all over the globe in a beautiful celebration of our diversity and humanity."

Time then for his simple but delicious recipe.

INGREDIENTS

500g beef steak cut into strips

One medium onion diced

Half each of a yellow, green and red pepper cut into strips

Twp tsps soya sauce

One tsp salt

Three cloves of garlic minced

Two tbsp of oil

One quarter tsp black pepper ground
