A BULAWAYO based recording studio, House of Raising Sound, has embarked on a project to promote rural choral groups which are failing to record their music due to exorbitant costs.

Executive producer Joe Maseko told NewZimbabwe.com Friday that his company has acquired mobile equipment which will be used to record music by rural choral groups around the country.

“We have acquired a portable foster R8 tape recorder with the capacity to record quality music. We have realized that choral groups, especially those in remote parts of the country, are not being afforded with an opportunity to record their music despite their popularity in Zimbabwe,” said Maseko.

Maseko said prohibitive transport, recording and accommodation costs were inhibiting most rural based choral groups from showcasing their music.

“From experience we have realized that choral groups are formed by a large group of people. It is therefore difficult for such large groups to travel to either Bulawayo or Harare for recordings due to costs involved. This is basically why we have decided to go to them instead of waiting for them to come to us,” he said.

Maseko said the new equipment will also enable the production house to record live shows.

“We now have the capacity to make live recordings whatever the size of the show,” said Maseko.

The production house has also produced music for local and regional musicians.

The production house has produced music for Botswana based musician (Kulenyane) Maxy Christian.

Recently the production house also recorded, Darly Wami, collaboration between Charma girl and Jah Prayzer.
