Oliver "Tuku" Mtukudzi's irresistible brand of Afro-pop is lovingly referred to as "Tuku music." It is a contagious mix that draws from effervescent South African mbaqanga beats and energetic Zimbabwean jit pop, along with the hypnotic mbira (thumb piano) rhythms of Zimbabwe's politically charged chimurenga music.
