Thursday Live Sessions with Leonard Mapfumo

2 mins read

One of the delights of YouTube is finding a musical gem hidden between annoying clickbait-riddled channels, case in point Leonard Mapfumo’s Thursday Live Sessions. Well before samplers and synthesizers were a part of hip-hop’s fundamental equation, most artists recorded their music with live bands in the studio. A band can embody a narrative of its own with each instrument. Imagine one instrument emphasising a note in a song that you may have missed otherwise. The deep tones of a bass or a certain chord of a violin can put a proverbial finishing touch on your favorite song and even make the audience view it in a different light.

Watch Thursday Live Sessions to see Mapfumo perform songs from his catalogue backed by Those Guys Vacho and featuring the likes of Trevor Dongo and Nyasha David.
