Watch Tinashe "Zambezi"

I shared the Fool's Gold remix of Tinashe's new single "Zambezi" with you earlier this week and Island Records premiered the tropical video for the radio edit of the track on YouTube today. Watch and listen. Tinashe is a very special and unique new talent to keep your eye on. "Zambezi" is the title track of his new digital EP that will be released in the U.K. next month.

Staying true to his roots, Tinashe successfully blends contemporary pop with invigorating African rhythms and compelling storytelling that is unlike anything else you'd hear in the pop charts. "Zambezi" is a great example of that. The lush, warming undertones of the song create a sharp contrast with its serious lyrics about a doomed relationship using the war for Zimbabwe’s liberation from Rhodesia as a backdrop.

Tinashe speaks from the heart, being a refugee who came to the U.K. when he was a child to escape the misery of war. That situation is a harsh reminder that children are always the silence victims of war. If you can, consider supporting the work of War Child that helps children cope with the devastating consequences of war through music, play and sports. Making a positive change in the life of a child has a lasting impact on their country and community.
