“A natural entertainer, wearing a black hat and demonstrating some slick dance routines with the band, [Mokoomba] lead singer Mathias Muzaza has a powerful, soulful voice that is at times reminiscent of his great compatriot Oliver Mtukudzi, but also capable of hoarse, driving effects.” —The Guardian

Living in a border city that attracts tourists from all over the world gave Mokoomba’s music an international perspective from the beginning, incorporating everything from reggae to afropop to soul alongside their own local musical traditions. Mokoomba’s knockout live shows and potent blend of traditional Tonga, Luvale, and Nyanja sounds are laced with international styles from Congolese soukous to soul. Mokoomba have become one of Zimbabwe’s most popular bands, playing with such icons as Hugh Masekela, Baba Maal and the Talking Head’s Tina Weymouth and Chris Franz.
