Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Shosholoza is a train to freedom. It is a traditional song of the Zimbabwe miners traveling on an old steam train crossing the mountains to reach South Africa. It was achoral music to endure the long journey and hard work and is now an African anthem of freedom, peace and solidarity among peoples. Shosholoza is a project of African jazz. It is a blend of black and white and it is no coincidence that the music of South Africa has inspired almost all compositions.
