WILLOM Tight and Adam Chisvo will begin the promotion of their new albums with shows atÂ Book CafÃ© and Mannenburg on TuesdayÂ December 9.
Willom Tight has completed production of his new album Kuzangoma, a 10-track offering which showcases Willomâ€™s dynamic vocals.
The project is backed up by some of Zimbabweâ€™s finest musiciansÂ including contributions on the guitars from Andy Brown, Clive â€œMonoâ€ Mukundu and a special feature track involving a collaboration between Willom and Oliver Mtukudzi on the track Dzokai Waro.
This album is dedicated to Willomâ€™s fans who have eagerly awaited the release of his latest offering â€“â€“ it has been 7 years since Willomâ€™s last release Ndinoda Wangu â€“â€“ and the songs on Kuzangoma are expected to showcase the progress made during the long wait.
Mbira fusion maestro Adam Chisvo will also be releasing his album Famba Pore Pore,Â an eleven track album of Adamâ€™sÂ compositions; he has teamed up with producer and keyboardist Bengt Post of Thulani Studios to produce an album which features Busi Ncube on backing vocals and Sam Chagumachinyi on drums.
Adam has been associated with many of Zimbabweâ€™s most progressive musical groups, including Ilanga, Andy Brown and the Storm and a long partnership with mbira songstress Chiwonso Maraire.
His mbira and percussive talents have featured on numerous recordings â€“â€“ the album Famba Pore Pore is Adamâ€™s first solo album.
Both albums were recorded at Thulani Studios and will be released by Thulani Promotions this week.
The two artists will team up for a double header at Book CafÃ© and Mannenburg from 8 pm onwards to give patrons the opportunity to flavour their new offerings. â€“â€“ Own Correspondent.
