Albums by Monoswezi


Monoswezi is a quintet with musicians from Mozambique, Norway, Sweden and Zimbabwe, based on traditional African music in addition to some music written by Hallvard, Putte and Erik. With a strong improvisational approach. With a common passion for traditionel African music in general, and music from the Shona people of Zimbabwe in particular, Monoswezi seeks a musical expression, where respect for tradition is combined with different references and experiences from modern Western music.
