mangoma​


means local Zimdaansaal myuuzik produced in the Republic of Zimbabwe; however, this may sometimes also be used as a general umbrella term for foreign Dancehall, Soca, Dub, and of course, Reggae music.

Etymology​


Ngoma in chiShona (or Chivanhu) means "drum," whilst mangoma is a plural form to say "drums." Another synonym for mangoma is machuni, and that's quite frankly a Shonglish term that translates into the English language as either dancehall tunes or dancehall songs, and by the way, chuni is the singular form thereof.

Example usage​


"Ayehwa ka! Udzayi uyo deejay aridze mangoma. Obvisa iyo myuuzik yema salad taneta nayo purizi."
