Chimurenga: African Spirit Music Review

by Leo Stanley

Chimurenga: African Spirit Music captures Thomas Mapfumo and the Blacks Unlimited at their most accessible. For those that don't understand Shona, the political message to the music is lost, since the music itself is so melodic and rhythmic, it's easy to get caught in its sway. Nevertheless, that's the primary charm of the music, since its percolating rhythms and joyous melodies speak the universal language of music.
