CD Reviews

Sweet Zimbabwean Soul
Matthew Watters | Kell's Restaurant & Bar, Mongouge | 09/12/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Four Brothers, though not brothers, are four musicians very much in sync. Their line-up is simple: Bass/drums/lead/rhythm and vocals, backed up by a horn section on some tracks. Their strengths are that their sound is raw and soulful, and their compositions beautiful, ranging from the laid back GUHWA URI MWANA WAANI, to the frenetic WAPENGA NAYO BONUS. This CD consists of 16 tracks and contains very nearly 80 minutes of spirit-raising lyrics dealing with such human experiences as the destructive power of gossip, jealousy, unfaithfulness, the joys of love, marriage and parenthood, and most importantly, the celebration of freedom (MAKOROKOTO), all sung from the heart. The style is unmistakably Zimbabwean, and comparisons with Thomas Mapfuno apt upto a point. However these guys have a family likeness all their own. A rare album of great power."

"An unmistakeable classic. The Four Brothers have proven to be one of Zimbabwe's top acts, and their first "Best Of.." compilation surely does not disappoint. Filled with 16 glorious guitar tracks, Makorokoto will definitely get you hooked on the mastery of Zimbabwean guitar. This album is everything it is said to be."
