CD Reviews

So sweet you could cry
Muk | Azusa, CA United States | 05/31/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There's so much sweet chimurenga-style guitar here tears of bliss could flow. Jonah Sithole shows here why he's the best guitarist of that style. So much melodic expression. The mellow vocals and singular yet crystal clear mbira provide nice backing. It's hard to pick out any standouts here, they'd all qualify, but tracks 2 through 6 I could play forever and not notice. The jit style is also showcased in the latter tracks. Chakafukudza Dzimba stands out for the guitar-work. Checkout the switch to Congo style guitar midway through. And Ereniya is classic Zim pop - tearjerk lyrics over lovely string melody and a driving rhythm. A must for any collection of Zimbabwean music, a classic of the roots styles. RIP Jonah."
