  • Oliver Tuku Mtukudzi: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

    18:11

    He seemed so casual — sitting on a bar stool behind the Tiny Desk, acoustic guitar in hand — but when you hear that husky voice, you'll know why he's a legend. Oliver Mtukudzi, or Tuku as his fans lovingly call him, plays spirited music, born from the soul of Zimbabwe. He's been recording since the late 1970s, with about as many albums as his age: 60.

    But Mtukudzi's new record reveals a heavier heart than before: Sarawoga is his first recording since the loss of his son Sam. He and Sam — also a guitar player, as well as a saxophonist — had a special relationship touring together. But in March 2010, Sam Mtukudzi was killed in a car crash at the age of 21. Oliver Mtukudzi recently told NPR's Tell Me More that the only way to console myself is to carry on doing what we loved doing most. Sitting down [to] cry and mourn — I think it would have killed me.

    So here is the legend himself, with much to share in the odd intimacy of an office desk. A special moment. --BOB BOILEN

    Oliver Mtukudzi - Todii (Translation Lyrics)

    Lyrics:

    Hooo todini senzeni
    What shall we do tingadii
    Senzenjani, what shall we do
    Zvinorwadza sei kurera rufu mumaoko
    (how painful it is to look after someone u know is gonna die)
    Uchadii uinawo utachiwana
    (When they have AIDS)
    Zvinorwadza sei kuchengeta rufu mumaoko
    (This person has gotten something that will lead to their death)
    Uchadii uinawo utachiwana
    (When they have AIDS)
    Bva zvapabata pamuviri pasina raramo
    (Death has been made manifest)
    Uchadii uinawo utachiwana
    (When they have AIDS)
    Bva zvapatumbuka pamuviri pasina raramo
    (This is a condition that will not spare them)
    Uchadii uinawo utachiwana
    (When they have AIDS)

    Hooo todini senzeni
    What shall we do tingadii
    Senzenjani, what shall we do
    Senzeni
    Tingadii
    What shall we do

    Chorus
    Zvinorwadza sei kubhinywa ewaugere naye,
    (How painful it is for the person you live with to murder you)
    Uchadii uinawo utachiwana When they have AIDS
    Zvinorwadza sei kubhinywa neakabvisa pfuma
    (How painful for the one who paid your bride price to kill you)
    Uchadii uinawo utachiwana When they have AIDS
    Achiziva unahwo hutachiwana
    (When they know they are infected)
    Uchadii uinawo utachiwana When they have AIDS
    Ende uchiziva Unahwo utachiwana
    (When they have AIDS)
    Uchadii uinawo utachiwana When they have AIDS
    Hooo todini senzeni
    What shall we do tingadii
    Senzenjani, what shall we do

    Seri kweguva hakuna munamato varume tapererwa (utachiwana) Dondipaiwo mazano (There is no repentance or turning back after death, we have run out of ideas)
    Uchadii uinawo utachiwana

    Hooo todini senzeni
    What shall we do tingadii
    Senzenjani, what shall we do

    Performance - 7 July 2013
    Oliver Mtukudzi was born September 22, 1952, in Harare, Zimbabwe. Mtukudzi,
    or Tuku, as he is known by his adoring fans, is a superstar in Zimbabwe (where he
    still resides) and a household name throughout Africa. Oliver Mtukudzi is married and
    the father of five, including Sam Mtukudzi, who was killed in a tragic car accident in
    2010.

    Oliver Mtukudzi's sound, a blend of traditional East African genres and modern
    subgenres of Afropop, including chimurenga and JIT, is known as Tuku Music.
    Mtukudzi is a songwriter and a guitar player, and is well-known for his graceful
    onstage dance moves, which he performs while playing.
    Oliver Mtukudzi first recorded in the 1970s (when Zimbabwe was still known as
    Rhodesia and under white control) with a band called Wagon Wheels, which featured
    his fellow Zimbabwean superstar Thomas Mapfumo. Later, he started his own group,
    Black Spirits, with whom he still plays. With Black Spirits, Tuku has released over 50
    full-length albums and several compilations, is a household name in Zimbabwe and
    South Africa, and is quite well-known throughout Africa.
    Oliver Mtukudzi's music frequently tackles social issues, particularly poverty and the
    AIDS epidemic that is responsible for so much misery in Africa.

    From Wikipedia: With his husky voice, he has become the most recognized voice to emerge from Zimbabwe and onto the international scene and he has earned a devoted following across Africa and beyond. A member of Zimbabwe's KoreKore tribe, Nzou Samanyanga as his totem, he sings in the nation's dominant Shona language along with Ndebele and English. He also incorporates elements of different musical traditions, giving his music a distinctive style, known to fans as 'Tuku Music.'
