Zig-Zag bounces back

Chigiyo music outfit, Zig-Zag Band, which took a sabbatical in 2005 due to economic hardships, has plans to bounce back with a return album entitled ‘Harder than the Rock’.

The eight member crew led by founder, Steven Lunga, is hoping that the album will follow the success of its eight predecessors that the group produced to great critical acclaim.

Zig-Zag Band became a household name after the release of hit Gomo Ramasare in 1987. Other songs like Mudzimu Mukuru, Bombiro and Mhondoro Dzinomwa Munasave also saw the group widening its fan base before sinking into obscurity in 2005 after the release of Chigiyo Vibes.

Band Manager Madson ‘TBR’ Phiri told The Zimbabwean, the album was set for release soon.

“What we want is to re-connect with our fans who have missed us for the past six years. It is therefore our wish to release something for them soon,” said the dreadlocked artist.

Phiri added that live shows had been lined up to enhance interaction with fans on a one to one basis.

“Score of fans out there have expressed keen interest in seeing us live on stage. We are not ignoring that reality and plans are in the pipeline,” Phiri said.
