FROM THE PIONEERING QUEEN OF MASKANDA

FOR THE FIRST TIME ON VINYL

THE ALBUM THAT FOREVER CHANGE SOUTH AFRIC'A MUSIC

Groundbreaking work from Busi Mhlongo – a real shift in South American soul at the end of the 90s, almost as if the set was marking the new sense of pride and nation that was taking place at the tip of the continent! Mhlongo's vocals are amazing – expressive in familiar soul ways, but with a range that's really mesmerizing – served up with rhythms that roll along in styles that echo older musical modes of the nation, but leaner and more focused – as are the chorus vocals on most tracks too!
