ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Comrade Fatso is one of the most explosive and controversial acts in Southern Africa today. Comrade Fatso calls his art Toyi Toyi, radical street poetry that mixes Shona with English and electrifying guitars with mbira and pulsating hip hop. It’s a riotous new music that's an uprising against oppression. 2008 saw Comrade Fatso and his band Chabvondoka launch their much-acclaimed album, House of Hunger, praised internationally but banned in Zimbabwe because of its criticism of the regime. House of Hunger is now on sale through different record labels worldwide. Comrade Fatso and Chabvondoka have performed extensively, having been invited to perform at festivals and venues in USA, France, UK, Germany, Portugal, Holland, Barbados, Reunion and all over Southern Africa.

Comrade Fatso's poetry and music have appeared in print and broadcast media in over fifty countries around the world and is being studied in universities in Germany, UK, USA, France and South Africa.

Continuing their upward spiral Comrade Fatso and Chabvondoka perfomed at one of Europe's biggest and most prestigious festivals, Exit Festival in July 2010.

Fantastic!
This is a great CD. It's a cool fusion of English and Shona with all sorts of different genres thrown into the mix. It's perfect for people looking to expand their music interests and as an introduction to our wicked Zimbabwean beats - it's especially great for homesick Zimbos! You should buy this CD!
