Thomas Mapfumo & The Blacks Unlimited
Gwindingwi Rine Shumba
Gramma/Earthworks 1981

‘Chimurenga’ is what they call this type of music, and it is from Zimbabwe.
Thomas Mapfumo comes in with this superb LP, he is the master in this style.
Originally released on Gramma in 1980, this is a 1986 re-release on
Earthworks. Very subtil guitar pushed African type of groove.
You’d better judge yourself.

  1. Surely one of his best lps, although it has much company. Surely an under appreciated artist in the west if there ever was one. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Listened to it in the small hours! on Dutch VPRO-radio, years ago..
    Bought it the day after, never regretted…
