About this item
Nyami Nyami Records presents a reissue of a rare gem from the Gramma Records catalog, the historic Zimbabweean label. Dumisani Maraire, the leading creator of modern mbira, settled in the USA in the late 60s where he popularized the traditional music of the Shona people.
"Tichazomuona" is the first album he recorded in liberated Zimbabwe, in 1986, with his wife Maichi and daughter Chiwoniso. You can hear the very young singer on lead vocals on the title track, long before she went on to perform solo on the international stage.
Original copies are hard to find and often fetch upwards of £200. High quality pressing which replicates the original release. Limited copies.
