THOMAS MAPFUMO – Toi Toi
Anonym, 2003

Wow, Mapfumo's really been churning out the records lately. Now working out of Oregon, the Zimbabwean king of chimurenga music continues to do what he does best: heavily layered guitar & mbira jams from his large band (the Blacks Unlimited), with socially conscious lyrics. Recommended, as always.

All tracks good. Fo's Picks: 3, 4, 7, 9

1. 7:32 – AIDS song, forceful groove
2. 6:56 – midtempo, good mbira
3. 5:39 – quick, nice call & response
4. 6:18 – pretty, relaxed (a prayer)
5. 6:50 – relaxed bounce, very nice
6. 7:45 – hypnotic weave, nice horns
7. 6:55 – quick, subdued, call/response
8. 7:39 – marching rhythm, anti-war
9. 5:41 – percolating mbiras/drums/vox
10. 6:24 – relaxed love song
