"Zimbamoto is the most exciting band playing African music to emerge on the West Coast for too many years. They perform mesmeric music for mind, heart, and feet - you'll have to work hard to stay seated once they start!"
Zimbamoto's music offers highly danceable and exhilarating flavour of African music based on traditional and contemporary melodies and rhythms from Zimbabwe, and surrounding areas. The original music written by band leader Kurai Mubaiwa is performed in the Shona language and played with modern Afrobeat sensibility.
Zimbamoto features all star musicians who all have flourishing personal careers. They join their passion and talent to offer superb entertaining and dance music from the black continent. They are leader Kurai (Lead vox, Mbira, Marimba, Hosho), Curtis Andrews (drum kit, vox), Greg Valou (bass, vox), Mark Campbell (electric guitar, vox) and Navaro Franco (Hosho, Shekere, vox).
CBC Music recently featured and recorded Zimbamoto! Here is one of the video clip.
