Thomas Tafirenyika Mapfumo (born July 3, 1945) is a musician nicknamed "The Lion of Zimbabwe" and "Mukanya" (the praise name of his clan in the Shona language) for his immense popularity and for the political influence he wields through his music, including his sharp criticism of the government of former Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe. He both created and made popular Chimurenga music, and his slow-moving style and distinctive voice is instantly recognisable to Zimbabweans.

When I first listened to the sound of mbira music, I wanted to hear more and more of it. I was ill for two years, suffering from a very painful heart, a pain that vanished the day when I learned how to play.

Konono #1 are from Kinshasa (Dem Rep of Congo), but if you like the sound of thumb-piano you may like it too:-

@Lisnaholic Great, the last couple of days my early, sunny mornings with a cup of Coffee in my hand, were energized by Thomas Mapfumo, peppered with the Gumbé music of Patcheco de Gumbé posted on page 2, flavored with the Italian vibes of Maria Moramarco`s stunning singing.

This is religious singing, from the oral tradition of Alta Murgia in Bari, just above the heel of Italy.

Haha! That's interesting to hear about your sunny mornings, Safar. Yes, Maria M has a beautiful voice.

Here's another exquisite piece of singing, but from the German group Vox, recorded in 1992:-

I once passed through Bari in younger days, taking a ferry from there to Greece. Valparaiso, though, I don't know, but if a song and a couple of photos are sufficient motivation, I'd like to pay it a visit:-

The Zarbang ensemble was formed in 1996 in Germany to explore and promote percussion music. Rooted in the ancient cultural heritage of Iran, Afghanistan, and Italy, and well-versed in western classical music, Zarbang musicians bring together a wide spectrum of skills, techniques, and traditions from different cultures.

Stumbling across superb music like this a one of the joys of this sight. Do we know if this is an ancient or modern work? Abbess Hildegard von Bingen would be tickled pink with this .

My last foreign language album discovery. A '70s gem from Argentina.
