Kawara’s hit fac­tory keeps run­ning

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Entertainment - Si­lence Charumbira

ALEXIO Kawara is a man af­ter Africa’s heart.

By far, Alexio re­mains one of the most con­sis­tent artistes lo­cally, churn­ing out a wor­thy hit timely for peo­ple’s at­ten­tion.

And it ap­pears his ploy has fi­nally been be­trayed by the re­lease of his lat­est sin­gle Hatid­zoreke.

The track is off his forth­com­ing al­bum Oyi sched­uled for re­lease mid next year. The al­bum also car­ries another sin­gle Zvazv­inhu re­leased last year.

Hatid­zoreke, how­ever, re­veals a new di­men­sion of Alexio. It is a bril­liant com­po­si­tion whose in­stru­men­ta­tion can get any­one groov­ing.

His in­fec­tious voice, his abil­ity to hit pitch with ease and the ar­range­ment make this track def­i­nitely one of the best prod­ucts to have come from Zim­babwe this year.

Gui­tar ar­range­ment, keys and bass are all pack­aged in­tel­li­gently in a man­ner that could make you think of mega stars like Yousso N’Dour and Tuku.

This is cer­tainly a sound that should see him grad­u­ate into a whole new level.

Alexio said he was in­deed was aim­ing for the top of the world. He said the singles also serve as come­back tracks for his fans.

“These are more of come­back songs. I’d been quiet for a while so this is to say to my fans, I’m still here,” said Alexio.

“At the same time, I re­ally need to bring back the in­spir­ing Alexio in this song. With my mu­sic, I want peo­ple to ap­pre­ci­ate who I am. I be­lieve I’m a dif­fer­ent artiste who needs to be heard.”

“With that in mind I see my mu­sic tak­ing me beyond borders be­cause I want it to change the world.”

Alexio said he has re­mained faithful to his sound and has not fol­lowed trends be­cause he sets his own.

“I don’t be­lieve in trends be­cause I want to set my own trends. I’m unique and I be­lieve that’s how ev­ery artiste should be.”

For his forth­com­ing al­bum, Alexio has col­lab­o­rated with a United States artiste, Wil Seabrook, on a sin­gle that will be re­leased soon.

“I’m still plan­ning the re­lease, but the song is done al­ready. We’re just wait­ing for the right tim­ing since I re­cently re­leased a new sin­gle.”
