The Bhundu Boys were a Zimbabwean band that played a mixture of chimurenga music with American rock and roll, disco, country, and pop influences. Their style became known as jit, and is quite popular across Africa, with some international success, and has influenced later groups like Nehoreka and Mokoomba the single most natural, effortless, catchy pop band I've ever heard"; the BBC's John Peel famously.

Zimbabwe's Bhundu Boys tried regaining lost momentum as a worldbeat music force with this collaboration with several "friends on the road" from various musical genres. The results are gorgeous when an old Bhundu tune, "My Foolish Heart," becomes "My Foolish Harp" with the contributions of Celtic harpist Savourna Stevenson. Radio Africa," with . group the Latin Quarter starts the disc with such an international bang that the other songs with that group are all the more disappointing for their Graceland-derived fizzle. Their style became known as jit, and is quite popular across Africa, with some international success, and has influenced later groups like Nehoreka and Mokoomba the single most natural, effortless, catchy pop band I've ever heard"; the BBC's John Peel famously broke down in tears the first time, when he saw the band perform live.
