Jonah Moyo & Devera Ngwena Jazz Band
Oversize, Tusk 1991

Jonah Moyo, voorkant

jonah Moyo & Devera Ngwena’s sound is zo sprankelend
en als je van een dansje houdt kun je echt er niet omheen.
Het is dan ook altijd een feest weer een van zijn platen te
vinden. Afgelopen week in Amsterdam vond ik deze. Zeer
lekker stukje jit uit Zibabwe, luister en huiver..

Jonah Moyo & Devera Ngwena’s sound is so sparkling and
hot, if you like to dance there’s no way around it. Always
a wonderful moment to find another of his records so
when I found this one in Amsterdam last week it made
me very happy. Get it and spread it..

Jonah Moyo, front, cd size

Highly infectious is this Music From Zimbabwe. Jonah Moyo
and his Devera Ngwena are extremely popular in their
country. Very understandable if you hear this superb LP.
This is volume 10 of a series which I hope to bring to you
in the future. Most of them are still on my huntinglist.
Next month we’ll already have the next big recordfair
in Utrecht. I am already looking forward to it.
For now, listen and dance to this sweet piece of vinyl,
