Zimbabwe's hottest band - Mokoomba  - is returning to Cosmopolite to give the audience explosive rhythms, and infectious, danceable music inspired by the genres of afrobeat and afrogrooves, zamrock, and chimurenga!

"An impressive energy, spectacular guitar, and endless soul... Front vocalist Mathias Muzaza is a dynamic force, and the band delivers impressive vocal harmonies" - LONDON EVENING STANDARD

Mokoomba has been a six-man band since 2008 and performed at Cosmopolite in 2014. The band has continued to develop their sound, and their latest project, the album Tusona, is said to be their most danceable album yet!

"The festival favorite from Zimbabwe continues its mix of spirituality and abundance with spectacular results!" – THE GUARDIAN

The band has reclaimed Zimbabwe's musical identity with their latest album. Tusona celebrates the traditions of the Luvale people, ranging from giving thanks for the harvest to the Makisi festival where dancers wearing masks and incredible costumes merge with the spirits of the ancestors to guide boys into manhood.

"Their melodies are the ideal combination of sweetness and sadness from Zimbabwe" – FINANCIAL TIMES

Pan-African music at its best, with driving rhythms guaranteed to make the audience want to dance all evening long on the 6th of September!
