Artiste seeks to revive country music

HARARE - Upcoming musician Lovers Pamire believes he has what it takes to restore the prominence once enjoyed by country music in Zimbabwe a few decades ago.

Pamire recently launched his second album titled Ndangariro which he hopes will reawaken dwindling interest in country music.

“People always venture into different kinds of genres such as reggae, hip-hop, sungura, RnB but I am offering a different taste of music to my fellow Zimbabweans,” the 33-year-old musician told the Daily News.

“I just fell in love with country music when I was a youngster that is why I am determined to uplift this music genre.

“Country music is a genre that calls for mature people because it comes with depth of lyrics and instrumentation.”

Pamire’s latest album contains three songs namely Ndangariro, My Mum and HIV/Aids which are accompanied by three instrumental beats.

The rookie country music singer is particularly fond of the title track which has a video that was launched on BOS TV last week.

“Ndangariro is about someone who has just lost a lover and is now recalling the good times they shared,” said Pamire.

The upcoming musician, who launched his first album titled New Era two years ago, believes that his debut offering failed to gain the support of music fans due to poor marketing skills.

“With this album I was only introducing myself into the music industry.

“I ventured into the musical jungle which has its own challenges, but I remain determined to get to the top,” said Pamire who regards Dolly Parton and Don Williams as his role models.
