Tariro neGitare records with German band

HARARE - Rising songstress Tariro neGitare will feature on German reggae band Jamaran’s forthcoming album set to be released early next year.

The rising Zimbabwean music star was recently in Germany where she went into the studio with Jamaran to record a song titled “Never Ever.”

Tariro neGitare is confident that the collaboration will help propel her career to new heights.

“I am featuring on one song on Jamaram’s forthcoming album due for release next year. The track was originally a Jamaram track but I added my verse to it. The collaboration will definitely help improve my versatility,” said Tariro neGitare, who was born Tariro Chaniwa.

In addition to the duet, the Zimbabwean artiste performed with Jamaran in several German cities that included Halver, Isny and Lichtenau as well as in Vienna, Austria.

Tariro neGitare, who has a single self-titled album under her belt, has had a close working relationship with Jamaran since the 2013 edition of the Harare International Festival of Arts where they collaborated.

Three years ago, Tariro neGitare, neo soul singer Prayersoul Mutamangira and gifted young mbira player Rutendo Machiridza teamed up with Jamaran and held 17 shows in 19 days across Germany.

In 2014 Tariro returned to Germany along with Prayersoul and the Acoustic All Stars trio-Tendai Madzviti, Munyaradzi Nyamarebvu and Fungai Nengare. The Zimbabweans collaborated with Jamaran on a 17-track album titled “Heavy Heavy.”

“It’s obviously exciting because these guys have become family after all the trips and experiences we have shared.

“It has improved our musical chemistry and the performances together are breathtaking. My wish is to expose more artistes to such collaborations as they open up new markets for Zimbabwean artists,” Tariro

Tariro neGitare, who also collaborated with South African singers Simphiwe Dana in 2013, first ventured into music as a 13 year old St. John’s High school student. She has shared the stage with top stars who include Oliver Mtukudzi, Stella Chiweshe, Jah Prayzah, Victor Kunonga and South African stars Zahara and Ladysmith Black Mambazo.
