VUMANI - Isiqedakoma (1986)

Decibel, DCK(O)100   
Producer: Vumani Mthethwa
Engineers: Keith Forsyth & Doug van der Merwe   


Sophisticated early bubblegum grooves from unknown Vumani Mthethwa on the underrated Decibel label. It's packed full of frantic, catchy gems like 'Banana Kar', 'Midnight Train', 'Black Mampatile' and the title track 'Isiqedakoma' (cool drink), making this an instant Afrosynth classic.
