Music of Zimbabwe

Music of Zimbabwe is not something that  I have had much exposure to

I hope to remedy this & will post Zimbabwean interest material here in the meantime.

It was tricky to decide whether to bundle the music of Rhodesia & Zimbabwe together.  They are the same country, but eventually I decided to split them because although the focus of this site covers the time of Rhodesia, there is certainly some overlap during the time that Zimbabwe was finding her own identity.  Music is art & not maths,  so I might change this later depending on how well it works.
