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!

REBECCA - Saturday Nite (1991)

Family/CCP/EMI, FLY(V)554   
Producer: Sizwe Zako   
Engineer: Marvin Moses  


To appeal to as wide an audience as possible, and continuing the successful formula of 1989's Thank You Very Much, side A of Saturday Nite sees Reebs sing her heart out on bubblegum tracks like 'Lazy One' and 'Dlala Mntwana', while side B is more Sunday morning - gospel numbers like those that would bring her greater fame in subsequent years.
