As I walked through Oliver Tambo Airport, Johannesburg last June after 4 weeks in Namibia, South Africa and Botswana, the sounds of an African singer attracted my attention from the music shop. I stopped and listened- the music and voice chilled my spine, setting goose pimples up my bare arms. I had to find out who that singer is! I now play his inspiring music in my workshop. 

Oliver Mtukudzi hails from Zimbabwe, a country we all care for during their troubles under the Mugabe regime. This song seems to be the soul of that country crying out  for freedom and love.

Gripping, I liked this a lot. He has a voice I could listen to on a regular basis. I pray for him and his countrymen.

When I hear them sing and play ... the rhythms is within them... How they move and feel is just so inspiring.

I have very strong feelings about the Government of Zimbabwe, especially Robert Mugabe! (I will not go into it here)
