Details / Info

Exclusive distribution by Sofa Records! Following the Chiwoniso 12" -which settled the Nyami Nyami record label- comes this 2-LP series dedicated to tradi-modern and urban music from the South African countries. The two reissued albums were originally released in 1984 under the name 'Music From Africa', a series on regional genres. These original albums were never sold in shops but only sent to TV, cinema and radio productions.
Opening the first side of this first volume is the 'Swazi Message', actually a deep, spiritual, vocal and nearly modal Jazz message ! On B side features some more familiar jumpin' Jazzy Jive and Mbaqanga music.
