Spirit of the People

Once more to Zimbabwe and a legendary album that single handedly popularised mbira music in Southern Africa. This project was specially commissioned by Gramma Records on the first anniversary of Zimbabwe's independence. Ephat Mujuru's band Mudzimu waVanhu (Spirit of the People) included the late Thomas Wadharwa (sekuru) Gora, Forbes Gushungo, Martha Mujuru, Martha Tembo, Lovemore Chiripanyanga and Patrick Mberi. File next to Paul Berliner's field recording of Mhuri yekwa Rwizi's Soul of Mbira.

can I also ask for a re-post of this file. I have a fair bit of Ephat Mujuru's music, but this one has always escaped me.

Hi. Kudos for posting this. It seems I an 2 years too late though! Any chance of a repost on this one? It seems to be incredibly difficult to get hold of. All the best.
