Phil FlarVh

Taurai Simba Chakuparira Zhanje was born and reared in Harare, Zimbabwe. His stage name is also pronounced as “feel-flar-v.” The edgy ruggedness of rock music, stirred with the booming bass beats of electronica, peppered with the rhythmic words and spirit of the ChiShona language of southern Africa combine to create his refreshingly captivating sound. Blending the soul of the musical traditions of Africa with sounds that live in the heart of the Euro club scene, this innovative artist is on the cutting edge of an international music phenomenon. Exploring themes of empowerment, self-confidence, and self worth, the highly eccentric and magnetic Taurai strives to capture a global audience in a way no other Zimbabwean artist has. His perfect storm of the rich, world music sounds of African culture mixed with adrenalinic electronica and meshed with the melodies and lyrics from connections to his introspective contemplations provide listeners with an unparalleled musical journey.
