Singing for Change

mukuru_musicHARARE A new initiative has been launched by the popular Mukuru programme which deals mainly in the transfer of money worldwide.

Grass-roots musicians scouted out by Mukuru are recorded in their rural setting using a remote studio. The songs from these recordings are then sold online, 80 per cent of each track sold is then forwarded on to the artist via Mukuru’s SMS-Cash system.
