EXPERIENCE THE EXHILARATING, PASSIONATE AND POWERFUL RHYTHMS OF ZIMBABWE
Born in Zimbabwe, Chris Gudu grew up in a musical family playing and composing music. He is now based in Australia. His powerful, high energy performance is based on "Umbaqanga". Often referred to as Southern African Township Jive Music. Chris has a contemporary African sound with traditional rhythms which really states the origin of the music. With his seven piece band, including two backing singers who can hypnotise their audience with their movements, Chris creates an exhilarating and unforgettable experience.
Chris has worked with musicians all over the world and performed with the likes of Angelique Kidjo and Vusi Mahlasela. Chris Gudu’s latest album "Bavimbeni" has been praised for the engaging organic feel which flows with a naturalness and warmth. ABC Limelight magazine has stated that Chris is “an essential part of the Australian world music scene”
In Zimbabwe, Chris was witness to changes from white minority rule to independence to more recently disturbing socio-economic issues. His songs have many messages, including that of peace for the world and for Zimbabwe. Share in the Chris Gudu experience. Be moved! Be inspired!
