site is a tribute all those marvellous musicians who entertained us so
royally during our years in Rhodesia.
Their performances, the songs they played and the venues they
appeared at are embedded in the minds of us all,
forming an intricate part of our memories of the times.
There is nothing quite like music to stir those deep-seated
reminiscences we have inside us.
The focus of this site is on popular music of the day with the
emphasis on the years up to 1980. For completeness, however, space
has also been given to music, particularly of a pop or rock 'n roll
nature, that has occurred in Zimbabwe since 1980 and which might not
receive exposure elsewhere.
If you were
involved in music in Rhodesia in any measure, be it as a singer, player,
composer, director, salesperson, manager, agent or producer, please
share your recollections with your Webmaster. Paraphernalia, especially
photographs, will always be welcome. And no, this site's not just for
musicians - fans can also have their say.
Just send your anecdotes and stories along to yours truly and
they'lI be slotted in and shared with our readership.
