Thomas Mapfumo: Rise Up.

Thomas Mapfumo is again at odds with the regime of his beloved country. Just as his songs once spoke of rebellion in Rhodesia, today he remains resolutely a man of the people – rallying their street-level support in the struggle against the new tyranny of Mugabe. There is no immediate prospect of a return home from his adopted base in Eugene, Oregon, where he recorded ‘Rise Up’, his new Real World Records release.
