ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
From the Leopard Man: ' If we were to judge a book by its cover, this album would seem to be a cheap pirate single. But let the dog see the rabbit! This is actually Thomas Mapfumo's best disc for many a year. And that's saying something for a veteran of African music who has been active for 30 years.'

From High Life World Music: African comeback album of the year ... this beautifully recorded disc finds Mr. Thomas in fine form.... scintillating guitar work by Joshua Dube, the trademark mbiras holding down the groove and a big, rich sounding horn section, this is a welcome addition to the majestic music of Zimbabwe. Highly recommended.

Opiyo Oloya From Roots World: Zimbabwe's Thomas Mapfumo pioneered the raucous chimurenga sound ... Mapfumo has perfected a distinct sound featuring mbira, electric guitars and sharp chorus lines... Chimurenga '98 (Anonymous Web Productions / www.anonymousweb.com) extends chimurenga to embrace other musical styles ... From the opening track till the very last, Mapfumo, backed by his perennial Blacks Unlimited, cook up a storm.

From Flagpole Magazine: ... feel the connections between Africa and Uptown New Orleans at a live show by a great African performer, ... Thomas Mapfumo, the so-called "Lion of Zimbabwe." ... Mapfumo has created a style of pop music known as Chimurenga, which is amply demonstrated on the new aNOnym release Chimurenga '98. Mapfumo is a fierce social critic he was jailed for his views by the Rhodesian government in the '70s ... some of the most beautiful music in the world, ... and its loping, interwoven rhythms are capable of inducing out-of-body experiences.
