premiere: Chimurenga Renaissance – riZe vadZimu riZe visual album stream

Black Up remains one of our favorite albums of the last decade, so it goes without saying that we’re pretty psyched about this: riZe vadZimu riZe, the triumphant debut LP from Shabazz Palaces member Tendai Maraire, aka Chimurenga Renaissance, is out today on Brick Lane Records, and this is the beautiful complementary visual accompaniment for the album, filmed in Zimbabwe. Featuring sprawling next-level production, traditional African instrumentation (ngoma, mbira, hosho), and inspired guest turns from Maraire’s SP partner Ishmael Butler aka Palaceer Lazaro, THEESatisfaction, Militia Malimob, M1 of Dead Prez + more. Buy it here.
