Zimbabwean Music Primer
New to Zimbabwean music? Don’t know where to start?
The Zimbabwe Music Guide provides insight into the world of Zim electric pop. But what else do Zimbos listen to?
The Zimbabwean Music Primer has been developed to provide a starting point for new listeners. Although this site provides information on many different artists, the Zimbabwean music scene is very complex and diverse.
The primer will introduce new listeners to the traditional sounds of Zimbabwe’s Shona people – the foundations of Zim contemporary guitar pop. Traditional artists will be introduced, along with a quick description of how the music of this site came into being. A short synopsis of other contemporary genres is included as well.
Each page provides a multitude of outside links for more indepth information on the artists and styles presented.
