Often known as “Harare beat,” Zimbabwe jit is an energetic mix of many African elements, including Tanzanian guitar, Congolese rhumba, and chimurenga mbira-guitar that results in a syncopated, pulsating rhythm that sounds as much like South African township jive as it does Trinidadian soca. If you want to hear jit, check out Bhundu Boys concerts like this one posted in several parts on YouTube: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5. There’s also a strong strain present in the related “Tuku Music” of Zimbabwean musical legend, Oliver Mtukudzi.
