Kuzangoma is an apt title to Willom Tight’s latest release in which the crescendo of the drum beat is the order of the day from the first track right up to the last.
AfterÂ last recordingÂ Ndinoda Wangu —— released in 2000 —— expectations are high that Willom had all this time been brewing something that will be well worth the wait.
Â As expected the long-awaited 10-track album is a melting pot of the various influences that have shaped his musical career from the early experiences with Mateo and Friends and shows an evident evolution to a distinct and individual sound.
The sound has been described as a fusion of traditional beats, ragga and R’n’B. It starts off with Ndodawo, a love song in which Willom makes his affections to the one he loves unequivocal.
Â The handiwork of Zimbabwe’s outstanding instrumentalists Clive “Mono” Mukundu, Andy Brown and Adam Chisvo amongst others is unmistakable throughout the album in songs such as Mareva Sei, Inguvai and Kanganwiro and has added depth and substance to the themes of love, identity and social cohesion that Willom continues to tread on.
Â The duet Dzokai Waro with Oliver Mtukudzi will undoubtably arouse interest along with Paye Paye. The album is not likely to dissapoint Willom Tight fans familiar with his brand of music. —— Staff Writer.
