For Friday's Google Doodle the search engine celebrates the Mbira is Zimbabwe's national instrument and in celebration, DJ Zinhle has shared how she misses travelling to the country.

Prior to the national lockdown and the South African borders being closed, DJ Zinhle was a quite the visitor to Zimbabwe for gigs however due to the coronavirus pandemic things have changed.

Africa's number one female DJ took to Instagram to share how she misses travelling to Zimbabwe and hearing the Mbira every time she would land at the airport.

The mbira is an ancient instrument of the Shona people in Zimbabwe. 

"I really miss travelling to Zimbabwe for gigs and hearing the Mbira every time I would land at the airport! Hearing it always gave me a feeling of comfort & joy and because I am a DJ I think it resonates with me even more," shared Zinhle.

In December last year, Zinhle bought the heat to Bulawayo Athletics Club (BAC) when she performed there.
