Jah Prayzah engages star-studded team

HARARE - Award-Winning Afro-jazz musician Jah Prayzah has engaged a star-studded production team for his potentially explosive forthcoming album Jerusarema to be launched in Harare on Friday at Harare International Conference Centre (HICC).

In order to come up with a soothing product, the Tsviriyo hit-maker sought the services of veteran artists Clive “Mono” Mukundu, Munyaradzi Viyali, Tammie and South Africa-based producer Keith Farquharson among others on Jerusarema. “We chose those veteran artists because we were after quality, we strive for a better product,” said Jah Prayzah’s publicist Keen Mushapaidze.

Mushapaidze said the album was recorded at different studios; Monolio studios (owned by Mukundu), Viyali studios (owned by Munyaradzi Viyali), Oscar KBM studios and Tammy Bimha before it was sent to South Africa where Farquharson did the mixing and mastering.

Farquharson has a wide range of experience in local music. Over the years, he worked with top musicians including the late Chiwoniso Maraire, Louis Mhlanga, Ian Hillman, Sam Mataure and Steve Dyer among others.

He was part of the popular Ilanga Band together with the late Don Gumbo, Andy Brown, Busi Ncube, Comrade Chinx and Adam Chisvo.

On the other hand, Mukundu is a talented and award-winning Afro-jazz musician and producer. Being one of the best contemporary guitarists, he is arguably the most recorded artiste in the country.

Mukundu has worked with virtually all the country’s music legends, including Oliver Mtukudzi, Thomas Mapfumo, Brown and Maraire among others.

Some of the songs making up the forthcoming 10-track album Jerusarema include Chinamira, Jerusarema and Daira among others.

Jerusarema is a traditional dance popular in Mashonaland East Province, particularly in Jah Prayzah’s rural home, Uzumba. 

Jah prayzah shot to fame with his second album Sungano Yerudo in 2009.

Lisa, Ruva Rerudo and Ndakusuwa are some of the plug tracks found on the album Sungano Yerudo.

Some of Jah Pryzah’s albums include Rudo Nerunyararo (2007) Sungano Yerudo, Ngwarira Kuparara (2011), Tsviriyo (2013) and Kumbumura Mhute (2014).
