Welcome to the all new Rhodie Music website. The task of transferring the huge amount of information from the defunct site to the new one has now been completed. This is not to say that everything is 100% just yet, but the flaws are being identified and addressed on a daily basis. It is hoped that you will find the new design appealing and easier to navigate. A huge vote of thanks goes to our regular visitors and contributors for the patience they have shown through these months of “re-engineering”.
The site now has a SEARCH facility to assist you in finding the topics, people, bands, artists or places you have an interest in.
The site was originally established in 1998 to serve as a comprehensive data base on popular artists, musicians and venues that brought so much pleasure to so many people in what was known as Southern Rhodesia, then Rhodesia and, now, Zimbabwe, during the period from 1890 – 1980. Although these decades are the primary focus of the site, a ZIM MUSIC section is included to capture the activities of contemporary bands in Zimbabwe. The site is privately funded and does not carry any advertising. It is hoped that the site will be of interest to you and that you will experience emotions of fun, humour, nostalgia and interest as you explore its pages.
The vast majority of content on this site has been contributed by the artists themselves. Where other sources have been resorted to, permission has been obtained for such use and the appropriate acknowledgements appear on the site.
