Zimbabwe's Most Beautiful Music

A posting from Brian:

I have a couple of songs I really like from Zimbabwe. The first is by Oliver Mtukudzi: Todii. It is a sad song but just as beautiful. It comes from his 1999 album Tuku Music.

The second one is by Thomas Mapfumo: Chamunorwa. It comes from his 1991 album of the same name. It is truly a classic, its beauty lies in the mixture of the traditional mbira and the bass guitar. Makes me miss my family and friends back home. These two artists are the best to come out of Zimbabwe.
