IZINKUNZI - Ningaxabani (1987)
Producer: Dumisani Ngcobo
Engineers: Colin Smith & Neville Holmes
High quality mbaqanga-soul produced by the prolific Dumisani Ngcobo (aka Mtambo). Unlike many imitators in the genre content to stick to the same formula, Izinkunzi (the bulls) throw Motown organs, three-part vocal harmonies and a horn section into the mix. Tracks include 'Iqiniso' (truth), 'Umsindisi' (saviour) and 'Zendile' (they travelled far).
