Stella Chiweshe - "Double Check"
Stella Chiweshe was the first PIRANHA recording artist way back in 1987. On her first double album Stella Chiweshe is travelling on one path in two directions. In her TRANCE HITS, she journeys through the world of her ancestors, preserving their traditions. With her CLASSIC HITS Stella Chiweshe revisits the urban streets in Harare and calls on the younger, westernised generation to take pride in their own culture. This 100th PIRANHA album includes 10 new titles and 12 re-released ones of Stella Chiweshe, with productions of John Peel, Ben Mandelson, Colin Bass and a special guest appearance of the rhythm section of the 3 Mustaphas 3.
"Her expert mbira playing is matched only by her pained vocals which are always given a full-throated delivery that achieves an exhilarating intensity. They soothe, comfort, provoke, then bite with the harshness of an acid drop." (Blue Juice)
