After ten years search for the country's most powerful rhythm, three of the finest new Marrabenta singers - Dulce, Mingas and Wazimbo, four dancers from the National Dance Troupe, and the legendary band "Grupo R.M." founded Orchestra Marrabenta Star de Mozambique - the "dance masters" of Mozambique (NME-London).
This band's songs sound the majestic battle cry of a new cultural epoche in suffering Mozambique. The joy and happiness expressed in Marrabenta music are the result of the people's firm belief in a future of peace and prosperity in their country. This demonstration of cultural victory over Apartheid can help to fuel the fight for its definitive fall. That is the spirit of Marrabenta, the national rhythm of Mozambique.
