TAKALANI BAND - Vha Mbengelani (1982)

Mavuthela / Black Hi-Lights/ Gallo, BL 360
Producer: West Nkosi
Engineer: Owen Wolf
Composers: Eric Mokhese & L Musandiwa

Rare Venda vocal album. Guitar-driven sound is less intense than its Shangaan contemporaries  and not too far from Zimbabwean and Mozambiquan tunes from across the border.

Produced by the famous West Nkosi (Mahotella Queens, etc). Standout tracks include "Nanga Ngoho".
