Sulu’s ‘Non-Stop’ a classic gem

HARARE -- Award winning musician Sulumani 'Sulu' Chimbetu's latest release Non-Stop is a classic gem that should secure his place in the sungura music hall of fame.

The versatile musician’s supple voice magnificently fused with the new Dendera flavour will definitely broaden Sulu’s popularity as it appeals to a more sophisticated audience.

It shows Sulu’s maturity as an artiste considering that he broke into the mainstream music circles in 2007 singing his late father’s hits.

The eight-track masterpiece breaks new ground by featuring internationally acclaimed artistes — a culture that is still alien in sungura circles.

Afro Jazz superstar Oliver ‘Tuku’ Mtukudzi’s husky voice dominates on the track Kwedu (our roots) whilst veteran saxophonist Philip Svosve puts a midas touch on Kure (faraway) and Faraway-giving Dendera sound a more refined and classy appeal.

A surprise appearance from (uncle) Allan Chimbetu-who strums the rhythm guitar on Temperature is a clear indication that the two maturely decided to join hands, ending their long time feud.

The two made headlines when they were fighting for the control of the Ochestra Dendera King ensemble, a battle Sulu eventually won.

The album is currently receiving overwhelming airplay on all the four radio stations due to its diversity.

Songs that are making waves includes the title track Non-Stop, Kwedu and Dzamutsana, which already has a video.
