Music from Zimbabwe – Sam Mtukudzi †

Today, I will present you the Zimbabwean musician Sam Mtukudzi(April 1, 1988 to March 15, 2010)  who died already in the age of nearly 22. He was the son of Oliver Mtukudzi, a great Zimbabwean musician, and played the saxophone and the guitar. He died March 15, 2010 in a car crash with his sound engineer, Owen Chimhare of head injuries at the scene.

R.I.P. Sam Mtukudzi , you’ll never be forgotten, as great personality and as talented musician.

His song Amai is very nice…

Music from Zimbabwe – Taku Mafika †

One of my favourite instruments is the Mbira, a traditional Zimbabwean instrument. One of the rising Mbira stars was Taku Mafika, a ethno-contemporary jazz musician from Zimbabwe. He died before the 12th october, because of having a clot in his brain. He is after Sam Mtukudzi another Zimbabwean musician, who died in the last time…

Here’s his song “Lyrics of Kare“, but probably it won’t be his last song on my blog….
