Zimbabwean Afro pop artist Cris Gera releases new album on Norwegian label LIDIO

Nziyo Dziri Mandiri (Music In Me) reveals Cris Gera’s passion for social justice and for questions that affects people’s daily life. His music is reflective of his surroundings and life around him in his home country of Zimbabwe.
The album was recorded in South Africa in 2016. Later that year Cris infuriated government supporters with the song Chema Zimbabwe – portraying some of the social and economic issues facing his country. Harassment and death threats forced Cris to take refuge in South Africa, later traveling as an ICORN musician to live and work as an artist in residence in Sweden.
Cris Gera brings up a lot of dark issues in his music, relevant, important ones. It makes you think, but through his vision and his sound, through the music in him, we move towards the light.
LIDIO is a label dedicated to releasing music from artists, musicians and composers experiencing censorship, threats or persecution due to their musical activities. We are a sub label to Grappa Musikkforlag – Norway’s largest independent record label.
