Thomas Mapfumo and the Blacks Unlimited

0 Love It

Thomas Mapfumo, long known as the "Lion of Zimbabwe," invented the guitar-driven style he calls chimurenga while on the run during the independence wars of the ’70s. Ironically, he’s still in contention with his homeland—only now it’s with president Robert Mugabe and the other power brokers Mapfumo's work once helped to liberate. Both his music and his message remain relevant and enduring.
