Oliver Mtukudzi is a true cultural treasure, one of Africa’s musical giants, Zimbabwe’s pride, most successful artist, and beloved figure of hope. Gifted with a deep and gusty voice, his songs include sharp observations on the struggles of his people, and gracious emphasis on the basic human experiences that unite us all: childhood and aging, respect and hope, women’s rights and AIDS, community and connection. Tuku’ as he is known is one of the most successful African recordings artists in North America, having sold hundreds of thousand of records on Putumayo, Heads Up/Telarc and Sheer Sound. Tuku is a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador for Eastern and Southern Africa, focusing on Young People’s Development and HIV and AIDS Prevention.
