Thomas Mapfumo

Ok so Thomas Mapfumo is just amazing... his discography is too big to put just one thing on here - plus I couldn't find the album I wanted to share on Mediafire...

But this track, Shumba, is sick - as is Ndave Kuenda (which I wanted to put on here but there's no youtube vid for it).

Also def check out his most recent album 'Rise Up' (2006) - especially the first track 'Kuvarira Mukati/Suffer in Silence' which I have been LOVING. The album has a bit of a different feel to some of his older stuff and was produced in the US collaborating with US musicians, because he's now living in exile from the country that he was fundamental in the liberation of - Zimbabwe.
