mbare choir.jpgTafara/Mabvuku Chimurenga Choir has launched a second album and DVD dubbed ‘Baba Tinotenda’ which is a tribute to the works done by living and departed heroes in liberating Zimbabwe from colonial bondage.


The Tafara/Mabvuku Chimurenga choir has hit a double by coming up with a second 10 track album in one year.

The album contains a hit ‘Baba Tinotenda’, a tribute to the Head of State and Government and Commander in-Chief of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces, President Robert Mugabe which is the album’s flagship.

‘Nguva yakwana’, ‘Macomrades’, ‘MuZimbabwe’, ‘VaMugabe Vakanaka’, ‘Negidi’, ‘Taishingirira’, ‘Nhamo yaiona vakomana’, ‘PaChibondo’ and ‘Tsigira’ are the other tracks.

The Choir’s Managing Director, Mrs. Dianah Mukanja said despite some problems the group is facing at the hands of detractors, the desire to tell the real Chimurenga story will see their fans getting more surprises in the near future.

Zanu PF National Political Commissar, Cde Webster Shamhu who was the guest of honour at the album launch, said his party has come up with a programme to honour the various Chimurenga groups’ sterling efforts in telling the real Zimbabwean story.

He urged the Mabvuku/Tafara group to remain united.

The album, Baba Tinotenda, comes hard on the heels of their debut album, ‘Muri Nhume’ that has hit the local market by storm by maintaining a grip in the top four at ZMC charts since its launch in February this year.

The Chimurenga choral music was popularised by Mbare Chimurenga choir through their hit song ‘Ndikusetere Team’.

The coming on board of groups such as Mabvuku/Tafara Chimurenga choir has taken the music genre to greater heights.
