28th May 2015: Thomas Mapfumo – Butsu Mutandariaka

Language – Shona (from Zimbabwe)

Translation: butsu mutandarika = Long oversized shoe – many, many thanks to the lovely people @ShonaNdebele for helping me out with this!  (http://shonandebeletutor.com/)

Thomas Mapfumo is something of a legend in Zimbabwe, especially for his political views (yet another person to be exiled…), and for being at the forefront of Chimurenga music.  This track is ace – especially the whistling!
