Stella Chiweshe – Kasahwa (Early Singles)

MANYSHADESOFMUSIC: Stella Chiweshe

A captivating collection of early singles by the renowned Zimbabwean Mbira master Stella Chiweshea a true African music icon. The songs were mostly recorded in the 1970’s, during the buildup to the Chimurenga revolution, and were only ever released in Chiweshe’s home country. Deep resistance and culture.

The brilliant new mastering by Nick Robbins from London’s Sound Mastering studio, reveals the urgency of these songs by separating the music’s key elements (Mbira, vocals, and shakers) so that they gain an almost sculptural effect.

Such a peaceful and uplifting album!
