Originally released in 1999. While the musical instrument most associated with Zimbabwe is the mbira thumb-piano, and you'll hear it on a couple of tracks in this Zimbabwean compilation, Trevor Herman selected this set with ears attuned to electric guitars and bass guitars, whether frenetic or hypnotic, easy-rocking or over-the-top. Of course there's plenty of singing and drumming, too, but guitarists such as John Chibadura, Frank Sibanda, and Muddy Face are the life of this party. As the British journalist and broadcaster Andy Kershaw put it, "There isn't a guitarist in the West fit to fondle the plectrums of these guys." Includes tracks by John Chibadura & Tembo Brothers, Four Brothers, Muddy Face, Zimbabwe Cha Cha Cha Kings, Max Mapfumo & Dopiro Band, and Knowledge K. Kunenyati.
