The first time he worked with the Hallelujah Chicken Run Band and the guitarist Joshua Dube came up with this way of muting the guitar lines and playing the mbira lines that way and singing Once he started doing that, you hear that in a couple of early songs which predate this, he was blown away with how the audiences really responded to those songs.
Granted, the band was playing for miners in a very remote camp and a lot of them were Malawians and there were different groups. So the band was charged with trying to have a very diverse repertoire so that they could play at a sports club and play rock and roll covers even for white people and then also play for the miners and hit each of the language groups and ethnic groups.
So they were trying a lot of things. And that was the band who in participated in a battle of the bands in Harare and won. And Thomas won for a performance where he was dressed in this sort of faux spirit medium garb with this skirt and amulet. And it knocked people out- it was the hottest thing.
And that was an important moment but one of a few that happened over the years where he started to really understand that the most powerful tool in his arsenal was these traditional adaptations. So it's partly that the audience led him to it but it was also that he came to really start to identify with this persona.
And it wasn't that he thought he was a spirit medium. He wasn't really posing. It was an act. He knew it was an act. There was no real confusion about that on his part although some people were confused by it. And it has too much to do again with this idea that this is all happening in the context of people who've been really traumatized culturally, aside from all the financial, economic and the other kinds of abuses that they have suffered at the hands of the Rhodesian state.
There was also this deep cultural wound and Thomas identified this early on and just never let go of it. And to this day, he will explain the problems in Zimbabwe in terms of this idea that 'we've been scared off our culture, we've lost our culture and we need to get it back. And it's not that we need to return to the people we were before And he doesn't see any contradiction between that. He's very good at synthesizing different cultural impulses.
I would point out these early songs with the Hallelujah Chicken Run Band- one was called 'Ngoma Yarira' and the flipside was 'Morembo,' which was not a mbira song, it was a hunting song. But again, both of them, you would not call them overtly political songs, they didn't say things like 'send your children to war' ED NOTE: as one of his later songs did but they did One was about preparing for the hunt and the other one was 'I hear the drums calling' and it's this responding to the drums.
And people could easily read into this, that this is a call to arms. And so the political side of it was subtle and became more and more overt as the 70's go on. By the time you get to Hokoyo! He's trying a lot of different things. But he hooks up with this band, the Acid Band, which already exists and he finds this guitar player, Leonard Chiyangwa.
And they like the fact that he started to get this vocal style down, singing like a mbira singer. So they bring him in Thomas used to always be the guy who was hired to sing the rock and roll songs. He'd be the one doing Elvis and the Rolling Stones and that. So this was a new paradigm- now he's the guy who's being hired to sing these traditional songs.
And he's also writing songs now. And Thomas is a prolific songwriter. From the moment he started writing, he has never stopped. The man has written 's of songs, I would guess. I couldn't enumerate them because many of them never get recorded or they get recorded and they never get released. Once he came upon his formula of writing songs, it was just a torrent that was released. And they're all over the map. You listen to any of his albums and you'll find a few songs that have you scratching you're head like 'what is he doing here?
He's quirky. But if you take the body of work that really is focused on Shona culture writ large and transforming it into modern context, there are many, many moments of absolute genius. He has the ability to take what was essential about this traditional idea and turn it into a musical idea that just works for a rock band format and turns into something transcendently beautiful and that everyone then imitates.
So I would say it was a series of cues. It was a lot of cues that he got back from his audience that convinced him that this was the way to go. And once he got there, the thing that was great about him was that whatever up's and down's he experience then, and there were plenty, he never let go of that idea. He never stopped believing in its power. Any detours he would take into reggae or any kind of hybrid music I mean, these days, he has his son rapping with the band even though he has raves against hip hop that will just take the bark off trees.
But at the same time, then he'll turn around and do a song with hip hop in it. So he's very malleable and adaptable as he long as he feels like doing it. He's not going to take anybody's suggestion that he should do something but he very well might decide to do just about anything. But no matter what he does, he knows where his center is and he will always come back to these core ideas of uplifting the traditional culture through these modern songs.
But the response to the audience is something that some people have tried to use that to criticize him as if He was just a guy who knew how to read the market and knew how to make money. To which I respond 'What do pop musicians who are successful in any age do but read their audience? You could just look at the man's life and you know While he himself isn't going to go back to the village and wear a skirt and cook all his meals over an open fire, no way But that does not mean that his deep profound feeling for Shona traditional culture is any way a performance or an act- it's very real.
He is the embodiment of the modern African who's able to hold onto a sense of pride and ancestry and some real knowledge of traditional culture with just a no holds barred embrace of modernity and to find no contradiction in it and to be able to go forward into the modern world but as an African.
This is something that he's really embodied and it's real. It's not a performance. It's absolutely who he is. PSF: "Hokoyo! There's some confusion over this. BE: I don't think that it came out as a single There were singles I don't know that the song "Hokoyo!
I think Hokoyo! And that by that time, he had been listening to a lot of albums and he understood that an album wasn't just a collection of singles, that it had to have an overall shape to it. And the album was kind of influential because it was conceived as an album with different styles and kind of a mix of things that would work together as a unit.
That was kind of a new idea. PSF: But you had said before that singles in Zimbabwe had a bigger influence in albums, right? BE: Yes. PSF: So did this album change things in that way? BE: It was the beginning of album culture in Zimbabwe.
The singles were played on the radio and they were circulated- that's what people were used to. Around this time, by '78, we're getting close to the time when Thomas' songs were going to get banned from the radio. At that point, the way people would hear them was from these trucks would go around from the record company. They would go into the townships and they'd do like these 'mobile discos. Reading from manuscript Hokoyo! Recorded it I know where it was recorded, I don't have an exact date.
It may or may not be known. PSF: The songs on Hokoyo! BE: I think most of them were probably written right around that time. Thomas tends to do that. These days, he'll go back and redo an old song but at that point, the idea of an album was new. He'd been listening to the Beatles and all these people. He had an understanding of what an album was as a form. My guess is that he wrote all those songs and went in and made most of the albums he made during the '80's. This is kind of the paradigm- you create a group of songs, you practice them, it's too many, you go into the studio, you record some of them, maybe you record too many, some of them get dropped and out of that you select and shape the album.
PSF: He was in jail between this album and his next album? BE: Yes, it was somewhere between 30 and 90 days. That's another of these things to pin down. Thomas always sticks by 90 days. You can do some guessing by how the law works. You could hold someone 30 days before you really had to charge them and they didn't have anything to charge him with so eventually they released him but they did under this deal.
He had to sing at a rally for Archbishop Muzorewa prime minister installed by Rhodesian government , who was a complicated figure. Some people saw Thomas a sell out for doing that. He doesn't depict himself as being a hero. He says 'we had no power. They presented us with an ultimatum and we had to go sing at this rally but we did not sing He always tells how the organizers at the rally were not very happy with he sung at the rally because he was still singing the same songs he had been singing before, which were all about going to war.
And you look at the songs that he wrote during the time- there is not one song there that suggests that he thought that Muzorewa and his party were the party and that we've arrived and everything is OK now. He didn't feel that way. He had liked Muzorewa- he had certain things that Thomas admired. He came out of the church and Thomas' parents were very involved in the church.
As much as he reveres and loves Shona religion, he doesn't see it as contradictory with Christianity. He has a way of reconciling that in his mind. And so, he has a tendency to like people that come out of the church. I think that Mugabe, with his Marxist ideas, just on paper was someone that Thomas had more reason to be suspicious of. But in the context of all that was about to happen, Thomas definitely did jump on the bandwagon and sing songs for Mugabe. Even on the Gwindingwi Rine Shumba , there's praise for Mugabe.
PSF: Was his jailing linked to Hokoyo! BE: There's not much controversy about how he was arrested. They brought him in for questioning. They presented him with all these records and they accused him of singing politics. His defense was 'no, I'm singing culture. This is traditional music. He was interrogated numerous times.
I don't think they had a clear idea of what they wanted from him. Partly, they wanted to intimidate him. But the other thing is that this was happening in early '79 and the game was almost over. Basically, the Rhodesians were lost.
It was too late for them to have any real impact by doing things like intimidating pop singers. The game was way beyond that and I think that on some level, they knew that. I've interviewed him Muzorewa and he doesn't even remember any of this. This is too important. He doesn't even remember it. I actually do believe Muzorewa- I actually think that he doesn't have any reason to say that he doesn't remember that. It was probably done by other people.
He was probably being manipulated by all sorts of people at that point. Some collection of people came up with people that it would be a good idea because Thomas was so popular, 'if we get him to sing at this rally, it will perhaps people around. We knew where that went- within a year, it was over. They had new elections and they had Mugabe. PSF: With the jailing, how did that change Mapfumo and how he was perceived in the public? BE: Thomas has been a lot of things over the years. I asked him a few years ago what was the hardest period of his whole life and career and without a beat, he went right to that.
Those months after that happened, when prominent voices in the guerilla movement started chanted him down and saying that he was a sellout and people started not coming to the shows, it was And it all started to fall apart. He saw it all slipping away. As in other times when he's been publicly accused of doing something that he thinks is unjust, he didn't really defend himself.
He didn't really get out there and say 'no, this isn't true! He just kept writing great songs. And of course, this is the time when the Blacks Unlimited, which had only been around for about a year PSF: Did the band proceed him? BE: The Blacks Unlimited formed And he had Jonas Sitthole, the guitarist who you hear on Gwindingwi Rine Shumba , that beautiful lead guitar work. When he got out of jail, he pulled the band back together. They just kept writing songs, very much in the same mode that they had been.
And they kept refining their sound. And emotions gradually settled down. Independence came. Thomas kind of had a rough experience at the independence ceremony with Bob Marley and all that. He played literally as the sun as rising and the only people who were left in the stadium were It's a nice image. And these songs on Gwindingwi Rine Shumba come out of that time.
In fact, one of them, "Chitima Cheruunungko," means 'train to freedom. Thomas was invited to play at a luncheon for the leaders, sometime in the early months of the administration. He sang that song, which apparently Mugabe liked and while he sang it, Mugabe and his wife got up and danced and this was on television. Thomas does not buy that this moment was so important but his manager remembers it clearly so I give it some credence.
But whether it was this moment or other things or just the passage of time, within the course of In general, what I remember is that newspapers were saying that he was on top. He was the most popular musician in the country. The gist of it is that he came back in a big way.
And it was the music that did it for one thing. The band was just really cracking at that time. The band that he had which recorded Gwindingwi Rine Shumba is just exceptional. It's a really focused hard-hitting combo with brilliant guitar playing, really interesting songs and just the spirit of it And that carried the day and I again I come back to the idea that it was Thomas' consistency, his dedication to his ideas, come what may.
No matter how much you throw at him, he never sort of goes off course. And I think people quite quickly recognized that and whatever resentments they might have had about the Muzorewa thing, they gradually let go of it and he became the most popular musician in the country. They hired him to sing in it. And there was always some sort of rivalry about who was really in control. Those kinds of struggles would go on but from the point of view of the Blacks Unlimited, this was Thomas' band.
