Robson Banda and the New Black Eagles -Ngoma Ngairire, Gramma 1987

Robson Banda is a Congolese musician in Zimbabwe. He worked with
Thomas Mapfumo, Jonah Moyo and many others. Although Congolese,
Robson sings his music in Shona language and brings it close to genuine
Chimurenga. Including mbira-based guitar licks and elements of Jit.

    He was not Congolese. Robson Banda is of Malawian origin but is Zimbabwean.

    Point of correction though – the late Robson Banda was of Zambian and not Congolese heritage.
