In this guest mix, Joshua prepared The Zimbabwe Music Express: a brief insight into the rhythms and grooves that have shaped Zimbabwean contemporary music from the 80's to the early 2000's. This unique selection celebrates the fusion of synth, disco, electro, jazz styles, with the unique Zimbabwean sounds of township, sungura, jit, mbira and chimurenga music.
