AfriPOP! video: Tinashe interview

From Harare’s Highfield township (where Robert Mugabe used to live…long ago), to Essex, to Camberwell, to Hackney, to the centre of our affections.

We predict big things for Zimbabwean afriPOP! star on the rise Tinashe whom we put you up on a few weeks back, and whose debut EP Mayday we just can’t leave alone.

Vintage Brit-pop, Soukouss, the mbira thumb piano, the djembe drum…all are part of his compelling music make up. It’s been about an age since we heard pop music this original and good. So, of course we’re excited!
