New gospel artist emerge

Following the success of the most soughted after gospel musician Blessing Shumba, the eastern province has witnessed the emergence of another promising gospel artiste.

He is none other than Mex Muneta.

With a befitting debut album called "Worship In Jazz," Muneta might be signing his way to the local hall of fame.

The eight-track album is punctuated by neatly arranged instrumentation.

The religious musician said the idea of a gospel jazz album was meant to unite people through music.

"My album seeks to unite the Christian community and jazz music lovers. I'm trying to bring Jazz and gospel people together. People should expect to be anointed with the word hidden in the instruments," he said.

Muneta said the idea emanated from his deep rooted religious and music background.

"I come from a very religious family. I used to play in the Christian Life Centre Praise and Worship. I have worked with AU Jazz Band for the past two years where I developed a strong passion for Jazz music.

"These two experiences have become a permanent part of my life," said the twist hair-styled artist.

Muneta has shared the stage with gospel heavyweights such as Diva Mafunga, Mahendere Brothers and Fungisai Zvakavapano-Mashavave before mastering the art of mainstream music under the mentorship of Mutare's gospel diva Agatha Murudzwa.

It was during his two year stay with Africa University Jazz Band where he horned his skills as an exceptional jazz artist.
