Bonus freebie: Chiwoniso

Zimbabwean pop star Chiwoniso Maraire (who was actually born in the United States) has a new album out called “Rebel Woman.”

It’s an international release. Surely somebody expects she might blow up like Angélique Kidjo.

Matter fact, Chiwoniso is on a North American tour right now. She’ll be in Chicago and Madison, Wis., this weekend and in the Bay Area next weekend.

The album’s lead track, “Vanorapa,” is available as a FREE MP3. Click here to stream it on my Vox blog. To download it, follow this link to Amazon.com.

There are more tracks streaming on Chiwoniso’s MySpace page.

I can tell you and I have pretty different musical tastes, but I always check out the songs you post. Every few tracks (and lately more so) I find a real gem. This is one of them.
