‘electrifying urban Zimbabwe dance music reviving the thrill & spirit of the much-loved Bhundu Boys. Harare go for jit-jive & beyond!’

Harare is one of only a few groups playing & recording Zimbabwean dance music in Europe. Formed by a musician from the heart of Zimbabwean urban music, Harare combines different styles from Jit-Jive to the deeply traditional hypnotic polyrhythms of mbira music. Harare music is also heavily influenced by chimurenga, the genre developed by legendary music guru Thomas Mapfumo. Harare are fronted by the exuberance and charisma of Zimbabwean musician Kudaushe Matimba and feature a groundbreaking line-up, mixing the buzzing acoustics of the Southern African marimba, mbira, lead and bass guitars and drum kit.

Founder-member and virtuoso marimbist Kudaushe Matimba was a member of Zimbabwe’s legendary Bhundu Boys, a band who were a groundbreaking force in the African music industry as they paved the way for more artists to reach commercial success in Europe and the US. Kudaushe has also worked with many of the most highly rated Zimbabwean roots musicians such as Chartwell Dutiro, Stella Chiweshe, Chiwoniso Maraire, Prince Tendai, Beular Djoko, Jonah Sithole (RIP) & many more.
