CD Reviews

Mbira: the voice of Zimbabwe
sterling riber | Harare Zimbabwe | 09/30/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Ephat Mujuru is one of if not the best mbira player in Zimbabwe and uses this perticular instrument in a way never heard before. With strong lyrics ( in shona, one of the traditional language of Zimbabwe ) and a powerful voice he sings about the old traditions used in Zimbabwe until this day. Every song tell a story of the growth and cultures of Zimbabwe and are very powerful especially to the shona people. This album is a must get."
