the Essential John Chibadura

John Chibadura, front

We’ve heard some of these tracks on an album I posted earlier.
It was a very popular post I remember, in fact it is the third
most downloaded lp at this site. John Chibadura’s sound is a
thrilling one. I wish I had a couple of his other records but
you never know what the future brings, listen to the essential..

    Hi moos, the music cd is one of the reasons why I visited Zim a few times and ended up living there some years as I married the love of my life the accomplished Zimbabwean painter Molly ‘Maureen Phiri’ Green.Although John is not my most favourite Zimbabwean artist he was a top entertainer who left us fantastic songs deeply rooted in Zimbabwean culture.I had the privilege to attend one of his concerts and I must say I was impressed not only because of the music but also because of the extremely well choreographed and professional show. thanks Moos. As I stated already several times my lost record collection is coming to life again thanks to your website.
    Ps : anyone who want to to see some great Zimbabwean Art made by my wife can google Molly’s Art Move.

    John Chibadura is one of those Zimbabwean artists I’d been hoping to hear more of, thank you DJ Moos!

    A friend of mine went to Zimbabwe a few years ago to make a movie about John Chibadura. Finally he released it on DVD which you can order here: Maybe you are interested, otherwise sorry for my comment.

    I have all albums from this singer. I really enjoy listening to him singing. He produced 27 albums.
