ARTISTS for Democracy in Zimbabwe Trust (ADZT) will today launch a peace album at Domboshava showgrounds.

Report by Tinashe Sibanda

The event is part of the Zimbabwe Peace Caravan Project which is running until September in several areas around Zimbabwe, to encourage the building of a peaceful environment towards the much-awaited elections.

The collaboration album was performed by Zimbabwe’s music icons Sulumani Chimbetu, Chiwoniso Maraire, Jah Prazah and Edith WeUtonga.

The four-track album titled Moyo Munyoro, carries songs such as Peace, Our peace, Runyararo and Moyo Munyoro.

Jah Prayzah said: “Love and peace are the happiest way of life.”

The project involves the participation of arts and sports celebrities in promoting peace and reconciliation and several artists from around the country will be taking part.

The initiative is aimed at complementing peace efforts from various political leaders, civic groups and ordinary Zimbabweans. The approach of the peace album is apolitical, as messages contained therein reach out to citizens from different political backgrounds.

“It’s only in a peaceful space that I can creatively express myself, so let me have peace to sing and play my piece,” WeUtonga said.

Under the same programme ADZT has also commissioned peace ambassadors who are preaching peace messages during their live performances. Among them are sungura musicians Zakaria Zakaria, Somandla Ndebele, Herbert Majeke, Romeo Gasa and Chazesesa Challengers.
