CD Recording of Chinho Raposo
Mango Sound Mozambique and the singer / songwriter Chinho Raposo from Chimoio have a long history of working as well as making music together.
On the 21st of September 2016 we successfully reached our funding goal at a Crowdfunding Campaign to record Chinho's first album.
Chinho Raposo has written more than 44 songs in 5 languages (Sena, Chimanica, Portuguese, English and
German). He describes his music as Afro Fusion. His lyrics often deal with social issues such as violence,
friendship, child marriage, poverty, malaria, HIV and more. The inspiration comes directly from the
surrounding daily life and he wants to get people reflecting on these topics.
He represented the province of Manica in the national cultural festival in Nampula in 2012 and made it to
the final of the competition Ngoma with a live recording of his song Rhudo Ro Hama.
For many years he has been striving for development of the live music scene in his hometown of
