Black History Month: Music

Long time no post. I just wanted to start off black history month with a newish artist who I really like. His name is Tinashé and he is from Zimbabwe, but grew up in London. I really like his song Zambezi which is a historical fiction piece about the colonial war between the British and the inhabitants of Rhodisia. This particular memory takes place at the Zambezi River (hence the title of the song).
I really love the mbira version a lot (some people refer to it as a thumb harp), but there is also the pop version too.


I'll post some more makeup related things soon.
