The golden voice of Mocambique and the all-star line-up of Orchestra Star de Mocambique are ready to energize, elevate and educate all newcomers to the magical Marrabenta style with the scintillating sound of Maputo city. 10 classic recordings from the legendary 1988 Harare sessions plus a music video of the title song, the mesmerising ballad "Nwahulwana" – an originally overlooked out-take rediscovered during the remixing for this release, which then found its way into the soundtrack of the Sean Penn directed film “The Pledge”. Marrabenta goes to Hollywood!
" Wazimbo and the Orchestra Marrabenta Star de Moçambique deliver the excitement of a classic African big band. Rough, lively, and full of glorious vocal work and surprising grooves.Banning Eyre
