Farai is the first album from Zimbabwe to exclusively feature the true Jiti rhythm. The songs on Farai present a dallas-like insight into the true rock and roll of Zimbamwe which is Jiti music. The sound of Virginia Mukwesha's jiti presents a melodious amplification of the jiti music: electric guitars and wooden marimbas and a drumkit are added to the original drums, rattles, handclaps and call & response vocals.

Farai literally means "Be Happy!" and that's what it is all about!
