Out of the hands of popular Afro-jazz artiste, Clive “Mono” Mukundu, is a new kid on the block, Brian Nyahuma, who recently released a new album titled Ndingatii Zvangu, a commentary on people’s daily lives from a bird’s eye view.
The album contains various Afro-jazz tracks that talk about the general behaviour of people in their day-to-day lives and these include Torarama Sei?,
Ndichachengetwa Nani? and Chishuwo.
“I pray that this album makes a name for me in the country’s music industry after being assisted and motivated by a successful jazz artiste, Clive Mukundu,” said Nyahuma.
He said it had been exciting and easy to work with Mukundu because all the advice he gave was based on his own experiences as an older Afro-jazz artiste.
Nyahuma said he had also worked with the late Sam Mtukudzi on the track, Unosvika Riini?, where the late upcoming artiste played the saxophone.
“A lot of people believe that Afro-jazz is for the elderly but I’m beginning a new era where the younger generations will seriously adopt the genre,” said Nyahuma.
Nyahuma said he would start performing live shows in November after putting together a fully-fledged outfit, the Blue Band. He is an engineer by profession and owns Beclem Electricals Company.
