Thomas Mapfumo

A very multimedia rich project, the website redesign for Thomas Mapfumo & The Blacks Unlimited includes album management, online digital music sales / downloads, secure payment gateway, and a separate eCommerce install for merchandise.

From ThomasMapfumo.com: “Affectionately known at home as “Mukanya” (“Baboon”) and to the rest of the world as the “Lion of Zimbabwe’, Thomas Mapfumo has been a witness and participant of the history in his native country, Zimbabwe. From the bloody years of the country’s liberation war in the 1970’s, right through the present economic and political cries, Mapfumo has used his revolutionary, spiritually charged music to decry injustice and highlight the historical and cultural issues that underlie the news headlines. Mapfumo is a musical visionary, fearless social critic, and certainly one of the greatest African bandleaders of the past century.”
