Abel grew up in a suburb of Harare, Zimbabwe. Being born into the music, he quickly found his passion in marimba and mbira, as well as learning drumming and dancing from his parents, Jacob Mafuleni and Martha Thom. Over the years, he has honed his teaching and musicianship skills, and continues to find joy in learning new music, combining genres, and composing. He is currently studying music at Music Crossroads college in Zimbabwe and loving it! He is working towards a certificate in music education. His band through the Tsoro Arts Center won second place in DreamStar Talent Show 2018, and he has performed in the past with big names such as Oliver “Tuku” Mtukudzi and Hope Masike. His kind-hearted, patient teaching style is a favorite of many, as well as his generosity and sincerity of character that is expressed through his musical guidance.
