The ‘In Total’ band was formed in 2014, by Takakunda Mukundu as lead guitarist, Naphtali Civandikwa as base guitarist and the leader Joseph Chinouriri himself on saxophone.

Back in 2014, ten years ago, the band was formed after the first family wedding as the band was really in demand at this time.

They said that they called it ‘In Total’, because one of their friends Mbaki Nleya hosted a Jesus and Jazz concert and in his citation, he included the words ‘In Total’ and from there they thought it was a good name and put them together.
