Oliver Mtukudzi and The Black Spirits
With a career that spans the birth of his native Zimbabwe and the advent of both Afropop and the global love affair with African roots music, Tuku’s quicksilver guitar work, keen ear for melody, and evocative voice have earned him intense adulation at home. Now accompanied by a mixed ensemble of young and veteran musicians, Tuku constantly explores subtle new ways of drawing his listeners into greater thoughtfulness.
Dubbed by critics as ‘The Ethiopian White Stripes’. Krar Collective performs a rootsy yet contemporary take on traditional music from Ethiopia based on otherworldly modes and driven by hypnotic rhythms.
