Thomas Mapfumo & The Blacks Unlimited
Thomas Mapfumo & The Blacks Unlimited His live shows transfix the audience, taking them to his plane of musical spiritual possession; they dance until the lights come on, and go home smiling. The electric mbiras lay the beat for the guitar, bass, and drums, which pulse out the Chimurenga style, both masters and creators of a unique musical genre. The full 10 - 12 piece band blows like a hurricane. The smaller groupings smolder and ignite. It's the ROOT of the Roots, something that must be experienced.
