Hola mpinji! This is AFROSYNTH, the realest African selection...

IZINKUNZI - Ningaxabani (1987)

Smyle/EMI, SNG(O)2009   
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).
