Many will know Kuda Matimba as a former member of the now disbanded supergroup Bhundu Boys. He is a is a very talented musician who plays and teaches several music instruments as well. It was such a buzz filming him and I had the pleasure of meeting Kenny Chitsvatsva, an original Bhundu Boys member during filming at the Jazz Cafe in London.
I chose to talk to Kuda after I had seen him last year performing at Passing Clouds in London. I was amazed by how he has stuck to the "Zimbabwean" sound and has grown a following in UK. During filming he told me he had someone build the marimba to his specifications. I could have included that in the film had there not been another band doing it's own soundcheck. The place is loud. Really loud. Well it is a music venue and I have set out to film these portraits with the people I interview in action.
