Oliver Mtukudzi And The Black Spirits: globalFEST 2013

Loading the player ...
GlobalFEST is a great place to discover young new talent, but occasionally the producers welcome familiar friends to their party. This year, it was Zimbabwe's Oliver "Tuku" Mtukudzi, who has been an African musical icon since the late 1970s and brought that sense of homecoming to GlobalFEST with his band The Black Spirits. With his sweet acoustic guitar and husky voice, Mtukudzi gave a lilting and gorgeous performance that evoked traditional Zimbabwean sounds like those of an mbira thumb piano, but filtered them through an accessible, guitar-centered aesthetic.
Set List


  • "Dzandimomotera"

  • "Hear Me Lord"

  • "Ziwere"

  • "Mutsverendende"
