Zimbabwe’s legendary guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Oliver Mtukudzi (affectionately called “Tuku” by his fans) is one of the most powerful creative forces to emerge in the Afro-pop scene in the last three decades. His music mixes hypnotic guitar loop, percussive beats, and the African thumb piano with his soulful husky voice and vocal harmonies to superb effect. Tall, slim and handsome, with a big stage presence, an easy manner, and a slick line in dance moves, his live performances pack houses in prestigious stages around the world from the Barbican in London to the Millennium Park in Chicago.
