ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The songs on Chiga Chikuru are both exotic and simple. There's nothing especially unusual about Prince Kudakwashe Musarurwa's instrumentation. For those familiar with Zimbabwean mbira music (mbira is the Shona thumb piano), Prince Kudakwashe Musarurwa's sound shows the influence of this bright, mesmerizing music, particularly in the guitar lines, but this is hardly the only inspiration at work in his music. "Katekwe," the traditional drumming patterns of Zimbabwe's local people, the korekore, can often be heard at the bottom of his music, calling forth the traditional rhythmic soul of Shona music. The south African styles of jit and mbaqaqa have also exerted an influence which is evident in a few songs, but not especially evident in others. Prince Kudakwashe Musarurwa's music is really a unique vibe, keyed by the robust yet remarkably gentle vocals of Prince and the dazzling voices of Mabel Bure and Mercy Dengura.
