Heita hola! This is AFROSYNTH, the realest African selection . . .

This month we check out Pat Shange's former band THE JUVENILES, something different from the IKEY GAMBA DANCE BAND and JOE MOSES, traditional grooves from SUKAZI MKHIZE and MAKAOTA AKALAME and the star-studded charity compilation LIVING LAND. Last month we brought you PATIENCE AFRICA, PRINCESS, NOVIDADE, ADZIAMBEYI BAND, The SOUL BROTHERS and SAKKIE.

Sharp!

THE SURVIVALS - The Big Mechanics (1989)

Anneko, ANN(0)686   
Producer: AT 'Rubber' Khoza


Quality bubblegum tunes from the former backing band of Ntombi Ndaba, (together known as Ntombi & Survival) on the Soweto label Anneko. Funky basslines hold it all together, best on tracks like 'Izimpukane' (flies) and 'Hot Stuff'.
