The music of Rhodesia & the artists who produced it
The music was vibrant, patriotic, sad, hilarious, proud & very diverse. Some artists are listed below, the ones that are highlighted link to either their own sites, or to sites that contain more information.
I was about to research these artists, but discovered a really comprehensive site already exists, containing a wealth of information & some great memories & stories about the Rhodesian music scene.
http://www.rhodiemusic.com/ has it all! If you haven’t spent time in this treasure trove, then pop along through the link & be pleasantly surprised. The site does not sell music, but is a thoughtful & valuable resource. They ask that you contact them if you can provide information to anything that might be included in their repository.
