Four Brothers – Rugare,WEA Records 1986

Dance rhythms hot like fire, strong and sharp guitar-riffs and
four voices that round up the sound to make you go mad on
the dancefloor. The Four Brothers were Zimbabwe’s No 1 band
in this genre for decades. The band’s leader, Marshall Munhumumwe
is Thomas Mapfumo’s uncle, he suffered from a stroke in 1997 and
can unfortunately perform no longer. ‘The Four Brothers’ took this
name to remain equal, so no brother would become ‘big’. Many
Zimbabwean groups broke up because of that before them.
Shona music or Chimurenga, either way seductive stuff.
Go dance like crazy with the Four Brothers.

  1. hey, hey, Moos, slow down, too much good albums in a row. Take it easy, take a big breath… Give us a lit bit of time to appreciate each of them. I’m gonna have an auditive breakdown !
    Why don’t you go out for a little while… Watch the sky and the spring coming, meet people, socialize, and then come back with that good old sound…

  3. Arnaud you’re somehow right, but we’re already addicted. Thus I hope that you, Moos, will go on and on and …
    Ok, I realise a lack of time to listen to all the great LPs. And I want to listen to all of them!
    It’s so great what you do.
    The Four Brothers had some CDs released on Cooking Vinyl 1988/1989. They’re great!

  7. OOOH! Many many years ago I had one LP from “Four brother”. (Don’t remember how was it calls, but there was a song with name “Kutambura” – we used this word in Russian in means “very very big trouble”. Don’t hear anything about Marchall Munchumumwe since that time. It’s great to meet him again.
