Mokoomba, Victoria Falls’s finest musical export, staked their claim as future headliners. The Zimbabwean group opened with a brooding “Masangango”, matching the gathering clouds. Trustworth Samende snapped a guitar string and Abundance Mutori filled in with a dub-heavy bass vamp until Samende was ready to unleash the band’s trademark mix of jit and zamrock. By the end, as “Welelye” segued into “Africa”, the crowd was dancing and shouting amid the raindrops.” Financial Times (about Mokoomba at WOMAD)
