Welcome to the Zimbabwean Music Guide
As an avid fan of the chimurenga, jit, and sungura styles which emerged from Zimbabwe in the 80s, 90s, and 2000s, I have endlessly searched the internet for information and links. Unfortunately information was hard to come by, and what I had found was sprinkled across various sites. Growing sick of spending hours, even days in search of the info and music I wanted, the Zimbabwe Music Guide arose. It has been created with the intention of providing quick and easy access to Zimbabwean band and album information, as well as providing a one-stop purchasing resource. And has it ever grown from there!

Please note that I do not live in Zimbabwe and am in no way an expert on Zimbabwean music. If something looks wrong, it probably is – email me. Also note that the website is constantly under construction so things will be changing all the time. Feel free to drop me a line if you’re looking for a specific title or information on a band. I’ll try to help you to the best of my ability.
Enjoy! I hope this site is useful!
