STREAM/LISTEN MURUME MUKURU (TAPERA) HERE

JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA – FRIDAY, 28 OCTOBER 2022 – YVONNE CHAKA CHAKA CONTINUES THE LEGACY OF OLIVER MTUKUDZI AND HUGH MASEKELA.

Iconic South African singer, Yvonne Chaka Chaka has had an illustrious music career that spans over 3 decades. Her ability to move with the times within her Adult Contemporary realm is unrivaled as she has enjoyed success in Bubblegum Music, Afro-Pop and Jazz. On her latest offering, she teams up with late legends Oliver Mtukudzi and Hugh Masekela in what is a musical prayer and petition for Africa’s healing and victory over poverty.

The Jazz ballad titled Murume Mukuru (Tapera) comes right after we saw the economic and generational impact of Covid on the continent. The song is now available and serves not only as a reminder of how ageless African talent is, but also as an example of how music is a form of therapy.

A legend paying homage to other legendary. It transports you back to much better days to hear them combine once more. This song incorporates authentic African jazz characteristics.
