World music albums hardly come any more extraordinary than "Mashasha"... More than compelling, indeed, it is totally gripping and enchanting... The production really is as outstanding as the music and the performances. Mashasha is definitely the world music musician to look out for!
The eponymous Mashasha will likely prove 2011's standout African debut. A phenomenal, marvellously musical bassist, the young Zimbabwean also sings superbly. His songs are exuberant, yet poignant. His electric bass is incredible, but just one element in an eclectic, subtle tapestry.
What primarily hits you about Mashasha's music is the velvet quality of his voice, the slipperiness of his bass lines, the sophistication of the conception and the charm of it's execution Enchanting.
Mashasha's virtuoso playing is melodic and varied enough to perfectly balance his emotional tenor vocals ... Captivating and beautiful, definitely worth checking out.
Exceptional... As good as Oliver Mtukudzi at his best… This really is a refreshing and sparkling debut.
Showing signs of seriousness and depth... a new voice in African music that will most probably set a new trend
A mystical piece of art with hidden and secretive gems... Uplifting, finely arranged and rhythmically interesting.
Explodes with creativity, class, and charisma... Now Zimbabwe can be proud of another beaming light of wonder.
Immaculate and unusual... Mashasha's intensity, charm and passion is evident throughout his songs which are delivered with sophistication and grace.
A revelation... Mashasha seems destined for great things.
Complex, intense and unique... each song layered with musical genius.
Strikes an urgent groove... A bold and musically colourful debut...
Poetic and unpredictable... Mashasha can take the simplest idea to a sublime level.
Pure delight... breathtaking dexterity and panache.
Richly arranged... some of the world's best players
Prepare to be dazzled...
