Thomas Mapfumo is „all the best in Chimurenga music: hypnotising mbira waves, yodelling vocals and rumbling bass..the Lion of Zimbabwe can still be heard loud and clear“ RootsWorld
“Chimurenga Rebel offers some of the most hard-hitting political lyrics.. while creating the ambiance of a Shona village..” AfroPop Worldwide
“(his music) works in a highlife-styled horn section as well as a soulful jazz-charged tenor sax solo, all over a curiously attractive groove that’s ominous and sexy at the same time” Jazz Review
