POPULAR apostolic choral outfit Vabati VaJehovah’s fifth DVD album is out. Titled Nguva Yakanakisa, the album consists of nine video tracks drawn from the group’s two previous albums, Zororo Kumatenga and Ndimi Baba
Richard Magaya, one of the leaders of the group, said the DVD album — produced at Laktam Studios in Harare — came after demands from their legion of fans who had been starved for a long time.
“Our latest DVD album is out. The song selection came from our fans hence we dedicate this album to them. We had to listen to their demands. We thank God that we are still able to do his work of preaching through music,” Magaya said.
“We took songs from both our previous albums as requested by the fans. The response is overwhelming. Apostolic choral music is here to stay and we are now working on our 16th album to be released early next year.”
The videos on the album include Makazodzwa, Hongu Ishe and Munoita Minana.
The group have released other DVD albums in the past including The Journey So Far, The Package, Handikusiyei and The Journey Continues.
Vabati VaJehovah, well-known for pioneering recorded apostolic choral music, has released 16 albums since 1999. Their music is simple acapella coupled with the clapping of hands and rattles.
The emergence of Vabati VaJehovah was followed by several groups like Vaparidzi Veshoko, Vabati Vevhangeri and Chiedza Chevatendi who successfully advocated for the rise of the popular genre. By Jairos Saunyama. source-newsday
