"Hukwe Zawose has been a success with his virtuoso thumb piano playing and his mighty voice that stretches over 5 octaves, from deep bass to falsetto. He can roar like a lion one minute and trill like a bird the next.
He is working on a variety of compendium albums of African folk music and has released two solos album via Realworld. Today, Hukwe Zawose stands out as one of Africa's most important traditional musicians.
Hukwe Zawose died December 30th 2003 in his hometown Bagamoyo having been ill for a short period of time."
