Heita-da! This is AFROSYNTH, the realest African selection...

This month we pay tribute to the recent passing of David Masondo by bringing you his legendary SOUL BROTHERS. We also check out rockers CLOUT, choral grooves by the LESOTHO MIGHTY BOYS, gospel synths from PRAYER FOR S.A., bubblegum by PHILLIP MATHOLE, a young Bhekumuzi Luthuli in OSHOMI, not forgetting the fancy fingers of TREVOR NASSER.

Last month it was SHALOM, JAZINO, BRENDA & THE BIG DUDES, ADAYE, DAVID MABIKA, ALTAR and THAMI & THE ALL-ROUNDERS.

Sharp!
