Back to claim their rightful place at the top of the charts is Bongo Maffin. Ending a 13-year hiatus from the studio, Bongo Maffin treats us to banger of a song called Harare.
Harare is as much about the Zimbabwean capital city as it is about one’s state of mind. The band interprets Harare from its Shona origins which means “Ha Ba Robale” (in Setswana) or “They Don’t Sleep” in English.
It has been more than two decades since the group’s first album release. Some of their songs still receive rotation on the radio. Songs like Thathi Sgubhu are still wedding anthems in most parts of South Africa. It is without a doubt that the group’s come back will bring smiles to many faces.
With all it’s members still alive, the group did well to fuse their original sound with modern elements. This not only makes them relevant but it puts them right back at the top where they left off.
Over the years the quartet members have enjoyed their solo careers, most notably Thandiswa Mazwai who went solo in 2006.
