Wende Zako, a band from Zimbabwe featuring vocalist J. Kavund, offers top-flight contemporary African music characterized by a great double tenor sax/double trumpet lineup with bass, rhythm guitar, drums and two lead guitarists. They were one of Africa's hottest bands at the time, and their blend of bubbling horns, flashing guitar riffs, and Kavund 's swaying, sometimes sensual, sometimes explosive vocals made this a memorable session.

The Real Sounds made their first European tour in 1986, and have since returned several times. The following year they were the subject of a British television documentary on The South Bank Show, which accompanied their European debut for Cooking Vinyl Records, Wende Zako. The follow-up was recorded in Harare with producer Norman Cook, formerly of the Housemartins and Beats International. They returned the compliment by guesting on Beat International’s album.
