One of Country's Finest Andy Brown

One of Country's Finest Andy Brown

There is a sound that defines a people, a sound that tells the stories of the people and identifies with them. Usually this sound comes from within the soul and spirit and refuses to conform to other patterns such as language but stands out and continues to represent what it was made for.

Andy's brand of music can be celebrated as such -- proudly Zimbabwean and African.

Original, engaging, moving entertaining and cutting deep, always crafted with a purpose and presented with a high level of musical excellence had always been the uniqueness of Andy's music over the years.

The fusion of sounds from the kalimbas, mbiras, keyboards, percussion, bass guitar and finally the electric guitar which he played with such a passion will always be a source of inspiration to listen to as we journey through life.

Over the years when the culture of buying and listening to music was real, his music always found a listening ear and favour with many music fans.

Andy's music can best be defined as afro-centric as it embraced elements within the continent and this often found favour for him within and abroad.

Whenever you attended his shows, you were guaranteed of a well-rehearsed and well-co-ordinated show, which would automatically lift your spirits up.

He was one of the most creative and moving guitarists to come out of Zimbabwe.

Sad to note that over the years in the promotion of music in Zimbabwe Andy failed to get the recognition he so deserved yet, he was among Zim's finest.

It is during times like this that some of us can boldly declare that he was one of Zim's fearless finest artistes, who stood for what he believed in. It will be prudent for society to be accommodative of musicians who decide to sing songs to do with politics.

Muzukuru, you played an amazing part in this endeavour and even though you have gone to join the angels your songs will always be a part of us.

So long
