“Chimurenga Renaissance are sonic translators of the ancient tradition”
- King Britt (for Carnegie Hall)
It’s been almost exactly one year since Chimurenga Renaissance graced our ears with a
release. They have been focused on finishing the full album release NHAKA (August) as well
as flying from Zimbabwe to NYC to perform at the legendary, Carnegie Hall, for the now
historic Afrofuturism Festival.
ZimLife is the perfect follow up to the soulful, Zimbabwe feat Nadine , single of last year.
It’s the necessary blend of the traditional freedom sounds of the Mbira, chants, percussion
and the unapologetic hip hop foundation. This is a special release for Zimbabwe
Produced between the motherland and USA, intentionally channeling its spirit, Zimlife is a
soundtrack to everyday life of Zimbabwean culture and aesthetics as shown in the beautiful
self made video.
Come get you some of that ZimLife.
