La Zimbabwe - Four Albums, 1 EP [Reggae - Dub MP3]



Staying somewhat with the theme of a third world country that is being choked and strangled by its own elite until the lifeblood of the poor runs like a river through the dusty tracks where no one cares anyway, I am posting these albums I found.
It is amazing what you find online when you type in the name of a country in crisis with the word +mp3 after it. Google is great.
Google is the new God.
Unfortunately, Google isn't that fucking great. There is little to no information around to tell us much about who this band is etc except for a couple of facts: they are an Argentinian band who play reggae(!) ... Ok yeah the second one was a bit too obvious but I found out where they were from so give me that at least.
All I can give you is this pathetic attempt at an online translation from a page that isn't in English...google tries it's best but to be honest, it struggles. You can get some bits from it here and there though. Here is another. Maybe now would be a good time to email some of the people on Orkut who seem to be fluent in the languages of South America...maybe we can get a human translation eh. I might just do that!

One thing I must say, the music is really really good. Trust me! I have listened to and loved so much reggae and dub over the years. This is nice also by the fact that you don't need to know the lyrics. The language barrier doesn't quite exists when the music flows the same in any language.
Try it.

Love the variety you have, and I love Jamaican music, especially ska, rocksteady and early reggae - mind you I am also partial to roots and dub. What would be nice is if you could get some Studio One and Trojan records on your site, especially as its the 40th anniversary for those lables.

Hey inspire121, I shall have a wee looksee around the place and see if I find owt for you!
The thing is, I know a little blog not too far from here that has all of those and any I did find would probably be like stealing them from there so maybe you should go there instead...?
Damn oops. Just as I get the link I go there and see it isn't being updated these days...damn

Hello, I'm from Argentina. You're doing a great job with your blog. I couldn't imagine that you can post a band like Zimbabwe! Well for you. In Argentina, there are a lot of reggae bands, and many people love reggae here. Another reggae bands names: Los Cafres, Los Pericos, Resistencia Suburbana (they're amazing!), Sumo, etc. Sorry but my english is less than poor, but... Good luck and hear them!

well, i will repeat some of the concepts of audiomongo, i'm always from argentina, specially Los Cafres (http://www.loscafres.com.ar/) & Pericos (http://www.pericos.com/), are 2 great but diferent examples of good reggae from my country. Sumo is more a mix of Joy Division, Reggae, Ska and others, try it, it was a great 80's band.

and yes, the guy with the orange Jacket is the singer (is call "chelo" delgado) and the one with white shirt and a criolla (or spanish) guitar is "pelo" aprile, now is an executive of bmg/sony or one of the majors labels and one of the producers of "bandana" & "mambru" (realitys pop bands, like american idol) :S
