Description

Most of this recording was made around 1980, just before this group became the first to record an album (vinyl lp) of traditional mbira music in newly independent Zimbabwe – and became famous under the name Spirit of the People. Enjoy the famous and fabulous vocals of Thomas “Sekuru Gora” Wadarwa, and the masterful mbira playing of Mujuru and Wadarwa. This one is a classic with lots of energy – dance to it, sing along during long drives, it will still be enjoyable after decades of listening! [Total time: 1:12]
