Kudaushe Matimba & Harare

‘Whatever you hope for when you think of Zimbabwean music be sure that Harare has it aplenty: ringing jingling guitars, rich-toned marimba, irresistible dance rhythms, swooping basslines, uplifting vocals…they’re all there, plus the unavoidable big grin that the music always puts on your face.’ (Rhythm Passport)

Fronted by Kudaushe Matimba, virtuoso marimbist and member of the legendary Bhundu Boys, Harare is one of only a few groups playing and recording Zimbabwean dance music in Europe, from jit-jive to the deeply traditional hypnotic polyrhythms of mbira music. The band have previously performed at the London Sanctuary Festival, Mayor of London Festival, Territorios Sevilla, ZimFest, Recyclart Brussels, Belfast Mela Festival, and the SOAS Concert Series.
