Mukuru Music is an African Artistic Development Programme funded by Mukuru.com.
Grass-roots musicians scouted out by the company are recorded in their rural setting using a remote studio. The songs from these recordings are then sold here online, 80% of each track sold then forwarded on to the artist via Mukuru's SMS-Cash system.
This initial pilot scheme focuses on Zimbabwe, where poverty is rife, and minimum wage hovers around $US50 per month. Every time you buy a song from Mukuru Music, you impact greatly on the day to day struggle these artists face to make ends meet by following their passion.
