Summary:
A blend of traditional and modern musics helped to sustain the struggle for Southern Rhodesia's independence and remains a social force in current Zimbabwean life. Includes discussions with several musicians such as Thomas Mapfumo, Comrade Chinx and Oliver Mtukudzi about how they see their role in this struggle in the war of liberation and in the struggles for development in a free Zimbabwe. Performances by these and other musicians and groups illustrate the points being made.
