Boss Zimbabwe band Mokoomba play the Picket on Saturday, and Getintothis has passes to give away. Get involved.

Zimbabwean roots music may not be high on everyone's jukebox but Mokoomba deserve your attention.

Fusing Latin, reggae and soukous, Mokoomba have been banging their drums right across the UK - including the studio on Later... with Jools Holland - and now they bring new album Rising Tide to the Picket on Saturday, November 10. You really should go.

Tickets are a tenner, but Getintothis has even teamed up organisers, Africa Oyé, to offer a reader a pair of free tickets to this Saturday's gig.

To be in with a chance of winning, add Getintothis on Twitter and answer the question below, with #mokoomba added on the end.
